Bristol City contract extension for academy graduate

Bristol City have activated a clause in youngster Flo Allen’s contract which will now tie her to the club for the 2020/2021 season.

The 20-year-old was offered her first professional contract by The Robins in 2018, following a move to Bristol City at just 16 years of age as she pursued her dream of becoming a professional footballer.

Allen joined Bristol City’s academy and has worked her way up through the ranks to go on and feature in the first team. Allen is a versatile player who is able to play in both defensive and midfield positions, something that has seen her gain success for her England at various youth levels. The youngster has featured for the Lionesses in the Under-15, Under-17 and Under-19 age brackets and will no doubt be hoping to one day feature for the senior team. Allen was also named in the England squad for the FIFA Under-17 Women’s World Cup Jordan 2016.

The player has been studying for her university degree alongside playing for The Robins and has studied for a football marketing and management qualification during this lockdown period.

Allen is thought to be delighted to be continuing her career with The Robins and has thanked the club for all of their support to date. Bristol City manager Tanya Oxtoby has spoken of how she is looking forward to helping the youngster fufil her potential and use the coming season to continue her development.
