New Zealand international ends one-season stay with Bristol City

New Zealand international midfielder Olivia Chance is leaving Bristol City after spending one season with The Robins.

The 26-year-old joined Tanya Oxtoby’s side last summer after spending two seasons with Everton and the player has been a regular in the Bristol City side.

Bristol City have reported via their official website that Chance will not be staying with the club for the 2020/2021 campaign and that the player will depart at the end of her current contract.

The midfielder has featured in all 14 of Bristol City’s fixtures in the Barclays FA Women’s Super League while 10 of those outings have been from the start. The player was also fielded in five of The Robins’ six domestic cup fixtures. Chance’s time at the Stoke Gifford Stadium has been a positive experience for the player on a personal note with the midfielder remaining injury free a year after she suffered a serious knee injury while at former club Everton.

After starting her senior career back in her homeland at semi-professional level with Claudelands Rovers, Chance moved to Icelandic top flight club Breidablik in 2016 where she spent seven months. In 2017, the player moved to Everton where she enjoyed a successful first campaign before suffering her long term injury blow last term.

Chance has helped Bristol City to a 10th-place finish in the Barclays FA Women’s Super League this season, ensuring that the club will remain in the top flight for another year.
