Leicester City winger Leigh Dugmore has joined FA Women’s National League North club West Bromwich Albion according to reports on The Baggies’ official website.
The 29-year-old midfielder was expected to take a break from the game following a near-three-year spell with The Foxes.
It has now been revealed that Dugmore has agreed to move across The Midlands to join West Bromwich Albion. The player is expected to make her debut for The Baggies against Solihull Sporting in the County Cup on Sunday.
During her time as a Leicester City player, Dugmore has made over a half-century of first team appearances while she has contributed 24 goals in all competitions. The player made her final appearance for The Foxes in the 1-1 draw at Charlton Athletic in November.
Dugmore announced her Leicester City departure in December after two-and-a-half campaigns with The Foxes. The player stated that her decision to depart Farley Way was one of the most difficult she has ever had to make.
The midfielder was expected to take some time out away from the game, however, she has opted to return to former club West Bromwich Albion where she started her senior career. The Baggies are currently ninth in the table but have games in hand against all of the clubs above them.
