Everton have completed the signing of full-back Poppy Pattinson after the England Under-21 international left Bristol City following the end of her contract.
Left-back Pattinson, who has also represented her country at Under-17 and Under-19 levels, has agreed a two-year deal and will join an Everton team aiming to build on a promising 2019/20 WSL campaign.
The 20-year-old from Durham started her senior career with Sunderland and spent 2017/18 at Manchester City where she helped the club’s development team to the double of FA WSL Academy League Northern Division and Development League Cup.
Pattinson comes to Everton following two seasons with WSL rivals Bristol City and is following the path of Blues captain Lucy Graham, who transferred from the West Country last summer.
