Teenage Bristol City forward opts for fresh challenge

Bristol City’s teenage forward Katie Robinson has opted to leave the club this summer in favour of a fresh challenge.

The 17-year-old striker has come through the youth ranks at the Stoke Gifford Stadium and she has gone on to be a regular in The Robins’ first team.

According to reports on the Bristol City official club website, Robinson was wanted by manager Tanya Oxtoby for next season and The Robins made an offer to the player to remain with the club. It is understood that the forward has opted to decline Bristol City’s offer and the player will now look for a fresh challenge away from the Stoke Gifford Stadium.

Robinson made her senior debut for Bristol City in October 2018 as a substitute in their 1-0 home defeat to Birmingham City. The player has since added a further 16 league appearances to her tally, although she is yet to score a goal in the Barclays FA Women’s Super League.

Two months after making her senior debut, Robinson netted her first senior career goal, helping Bristol City to a 5-2 victory over second tier side Aston Villa at the Stoke Gifford Stadium in the FA Women’s Continental League Cup. The player netted against Charlton Athletic in the same competition this season before scoring the goal which saw Bristol City defeat Durham in the fourth round of this season’s Women’s FA Cup.

Despite opting to end her time at Bristol City, Robinson leaves with the best wishes of the club.
