Bristol City goalkeeper Håland completes move to Iceland

Bristol City goalkeeper Benedicte Håland has completed a move to Icelandic club Selfoss according to reports on The Robins’ official club website.

The 23-year-old former Norwegian youth international goalkeeper moved to Twerton Park last summer and she has provided some stern competition for Bristol City’s first choice goalkeeper Sophie Baggaley this season.

Håland has played as an understudy to Baggaley but she has made two appearances for Bristol City. The player made her debut in the club’s 2-1 victory over Aston Villa in the FA Women’s Continental League Cup in January while Håland was also fielded in stand-in boss Matt Beard’s first league game in charge against Everton.

Håland was an unused substitute for Bristol City as they were defeated 3-1 by Brighton & Hove Albion in their final Barclays FA Women’s Super League game of the season on Sunday. That matchday appearance has proved to be the player’s last involvement for The Robins with Håland having now departed.

Other than a short spell in Switzerland with Lugano, Håland has spent all of her previous time playing back home in Norway. The keeper’s move to Selfoss will see her test herself in the Icelandic game for the very first time.

Håland has left Bristol City with the best wishes of the club.
