Spanish striker Laura Del Rio has committed to Bristol Academy on and off the field in a deal which sees the player take on a new role as Under-18 head coach.
The 16-18 youth programme is based at SGS College in Bristol where players are able to combine training with education at the elite facility.
Bristol Academy's 2013 FA WSL squad featured 11 players who had attended SGS College which highlights the strong youth development link between the Under-18s and first team squad. Club president and SGS principal Kevin Hamblin said: "We are delighted that Laura is staying with us for next year, and she will be taking a more active coaching role with our 16-18s."
Del Rio, who has played professionally in Germany and America for Frankfurt and Boston Breakers respectively, added: "Bristol Academy have given me the opportunity to play and coach at the same time and at a very good standard.
Bristol is a big family - it reminds me to my days in Valencia. Here I feel important for the team. I'm excited for the challenge and look forward to introducing some Spanish skills to the youth team."
