Ebony Salmon

Bristol City Manager, Tanya Oxtoby, said: “We’re delighted to sign Ebony as we build towards the start of the new season.

“She is a very gifted player who possess an abundance of raw talent and her out and out pace will make her a threat to all WSL defences this season, I am excited to see how much further she can progress and develop with us.

“I’ve said since I started here that as a club Bristol City Women has an ethos of unearthing and developing talented young players by providing a high performance environment to develop their game understanding through regular playing time.

“We have so many examples of this as a club, whether it’s our home grown talent such as Jess Woolley, Ellie Strippel or Jas Matthews that have come through our academy, or the likes of identifying raw talent such Ella Rutherford and Poppy Pattinson who have thrived from regular game time last year, Bristol is about helping players reach their potential.

“Ebony’s arrival is yet another example of the hard work going on at the club to provide a pathway for young players to play international football at the highest level, and we wish her and Ella all the best as they prepare for the U19s Euros.”
