Jemma Purfield is a Robin

Bristol City Women are delighted to announce the signing of Jemma Purfield ahead of the 2020/21 season.

The 23-year-old has put pen to paper on a two-year deal with City.

Purfield arrives in the West Country after departing from Liverpool and has previously had stints at Doncaster Belles and Durham prior to competing at College level in the US, where she attended South Alabama and Arizona State.

City Women’s newest recruit has also represented the Young Lionesses at Under-17 and Under-19 level.

“I’m delighted to have sign for Bristol City. I’m really looking forward to meeting everyone and getting to work with the staff and players at the club,” said Purfield.

“I’ve heard great things about the club and city, I can’t wait to get on the training pitch and prepare for what is shaping up to be an exciting season ahead.”

Manager Tanya Oxtoby said: “After my first conversation with Jemma, I knew the environment she was seeking for her next challenge matched perfectly with what we provide at Bristol.

“We are about developing, challenging and providing opportunities for young English talent in one of the best leagues in the world.

“Jemma is going to be a fantastic addition to our squad. She is a bright young English player who is looking for the opportunity to earn game time, and her mentality fits the Bristol ethos perfectly. I’m really looking forward to working with her on a daily basis and watching her develop as a footballer.”
