Bristol City have announced that young defender Faye Bryson has put pen-to-paper on a new two year deal.

The 22-year-old signed from fellow WSL club Everton in late January and featured in each of the five Vixens' fixtures before the season was curtailed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Despite only being 22, she made 42 appearances in a five-year spell with the Toffees that saw her make her WSL 2 debut at the age of 18.

It is the second announcement of players for next season in as many days from the Vixens, with Australian veteran Ella Mastrantonio joining the club on Tuesday

'I can't wait to build on the hard work'

Speaking to bcfc.co.uk when the deal was announced, Bryson said: 

“I’m delighted to sign a two-year deal here at Bristol City

“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”

'Another bright young English player'

Speaking in the same article, Bristol City Head Coach Tanya Oxtoby spoke about how she thinks Bryson could be a 'fantastic addition' to her squad:

“Faye came to us short on confidence and in need of a supportive environment and the opportunity for game time. She has thrived within our group and has really impressed in her short time with us in the second half of the season.

“She is another bright young English player, who with the right investment in her development, is going to continue to be a fantastic addition to our squad.

“I’m looking forward to working with her again this season and watching her progress reach her full potential as a player.”
