Matthews re-joins City Women

Bristol Academy product Jas Matthews has signed with Bristol City Women ahead of the new Barclays FA Women's Super League season.

The 26-year-old central defender had been at the club for nine years before departing for Liverpool in the summer of 2018.

Matthews is a former Bristol City Women captain and spoke of the privilege she feels to be back at the club where her football career started.

“I’m so excited to be back here, it feels like home for me. I was here for nine years before I left last summer, so I feel privileged to be back here and I can’t wait to get going, said Matthews.

“Obviously it’s like home to me and the way the club performed last year really made me look into coming back.

“Tanya sounds fantastic to work with, I’ve only heard positive things from all the girls here and the performances, as well as results speak for themselves.

Bristol City Women Manager, Tanya Oxtoby, said: “We’re delighted to have Jas back at the club ahead of the new season.

“She’s a talented footballer and more importantly a great person to have back in Bristol colours. To have Jas back at the club where she learned her trade, after a short stint away, is testimony that what we are building here is heading the right direction, and I’m sure she’s going to huge impact for us this season.

“Jas knows the club inside out having come through our ranks over the last 9 years, and know the essence of what Bristol is about. She is such a popular figure with long standing players of the club, and couple that with her footballing talent and I know she will be able to hit the ground running.”
