ICYMI: City Women land trio of signings

Bristol City Women announced a trio of summer arrivals this week as Ella Mastrantonio, Aimee Palmer and Faye Bryson all signed deals with the Robins.

Ella Mastrantonio

The 28-year-old arrives from W-League side Western Sydney Wanderers to add firepower to the Robins’ midfield and provide a wealth of experience with over 100 W-League appearances and six caps for the Matildas.

“It’s an honour, privilege and a dream come true to sign for such a prestigious club as Bristol City and coming to one of, if not the best league in the world,” said Mastrantonio, who links up again with former Perth Glory team-mate and now City Manager Tanya Oxtoby.

“Women’s football is absolutely skyrocketing in Europe, and especially the UK, so what better way to challenge yourself to become a better person and player than playing with and coming up against the best of the best."


Aimee Palmer

The 19-year-old has signed a two-year deal with the Robins which sees her return to the West Country having left in 2018 to join Manchester United.

Palmer’s talents have also seen her progress through the Young Lionesses’ pathway and represent England at Under-17, Under-19 and Under-21 level.

“I’m very excited to be back at the club where my professional football journey started,” said Palmer.

“I know Bristol City is a great club and I’m looking forward to getting back on the pitch and working with Tanya.

“I’ve grown a lot as a player, and a person over the last two years - I can’t wait to show that this season.”


Faye Bryson

The 23-year-old impressed during her short spell in the 2019/20 campaign and has put pen to paper on a two-year deal with the Robins.

“I’m delighted to sign a two-year deal here at Bristol City,” said Bryson.

“The club, my teammates and coaches have allowed me to enjoy my football again and that means the world to me.

“I can’t wait to build on the hard work we’ve put in and hit the ground running come the start of the new season”.
