Birmingham City goalkeeper to move on

Birmingham City goalkeeper Alex Brooks will leave the club when her contract at the SportNation.bet Stadium expires at the end of the month according to reports on the Blues’ official website.

The 25-year-old Wythenshawe-born stopper has spent the last 17 months with the Blues but has largely played understudy to youngster Hannah Hampton.

With the player’s contract set to expire on 30 June, it has today been announced that Brooks’ time at Birmingham City is coming to an end. She will join a number of other goalkeepers in the Barclays FA Women’s Super League in becoming free agents this summer.

During her time with the Blues, Brooks failed to make a single appearance for the club in the Barclays FA Women’s Super League, being named amongst the substitutes on 20 occasions. The keeper has made two appearances for Birmingham City in the FA Women’s Continental League Cup this season while she also appeared as the Blues won 1-0 at Sunderland in the Women’s FA Cup fifth round.

Brooks started her career with Manchester City before dropping down the pyramid to join AFC Fylde. A short spell with Blackburn Rovers followed before the player represented Sheffield United during the first half of last season.

Birmingham City signed Brooks in January 2019 after former keeper Ann-Katrin Berger had moved to Chelsea.
