Australian international Ella Mastrantonio has signed for Bristol City Women ahead of the 2020/21 Barclays FAWSL campaign.
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.
The midfielder has been plying her trade in the Australia’s top-flight for over a decade, having burst on to the scene in 2009 and she has gone on to represent Perth Glory, Melbourne Victory and the Wanderers.
“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 team-mate and now City Manager Tanya Oxtoby.
“I’m so excited to be able to work with Tanya again after spending my formative years as a footballer together in Western Australia and to now be working with each other in the WSL is just incredible.
“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.
“I can’t thank Tanya and Bristol City enough for giving me this opportunity and I can’t wait to get started to hopefully bring success to the club.”
Oxtoby said: “Ella is someone who had to put up with playing alongside me in Perth when she was younger, and I’ve been following her footballing journey over a number of years since I left.
“She had an outstanding season for Western Sydney in the W-League last year, and I felt that now was the right time to get her across and challenge her in one of the best leagues in the world.
“It’s important when you are a club like Bristol City that the players you bring in are able to add value in the right areas. With international experience and over 100 domestic appearances in the W-League she’ll be a great addition to our squad as we look to add strength to our midfield.”
