Academy graduate signs first professional contract with Bristol City

Teenage midfielder Georgia Wilson has penned her first professional deal with Barclays FA Women’s Super League side Bristol City according to reports on The Robins’ official website.

The 18-year-old broke into the first team last season and went on to make eight appearances for The Robins in the league before her debut season was cruelly cut short through an ankle injury.

Wilson made her bow for the senior team in September 2019 in a 2-0 away defeat at Everton. Bristol City’s number 20 then chalked up her first senior goal for The Robins three months later in their FA Women’s Continental League Cup clash with Charlton Athletic, a game which they went on to win 5-2.

Upon signing her new deal, Wilson told official Bristol City media sources “I’m really happy to sign my first professional contract with Bristol City.

“It’s a club close to my heart as I came through the development system here.

“I’m excited for the season ahead and it will be great to get back on the pitch and play football.”

Wilson is another in a long line of fledgling footballing talents to breakthrough at Bristol City in recent years. She features on a list of youngsters who have made the grade at the Stoke Gifford Stadium which includes the likes of Lauren Hemp and Aimee Palmer. With Bristol City not boasting the same level of financial resources as some of their Barclays FA Women’s Super League rivals, development of young players could be key in their bid to remain a top flight side for many years to come.
