Academy sign Mary Earps - 27 Mar 2014 - Women's Football NewsBristol Academy have today announced the signing of goalkeeper Mary Earps. 
Mary joins the Vixens from Birmingham City where she spent one season with the Blues, having signed for them in 2013 from Doncaster Rovers Belles.
Mary will be the No.1 at the club and is already looking forward to getting started. She said: "I'm relishing the challenge of being Bristol's number one in the WSL and in the Champions league." Mary made her UEFA Women's Champions League debut in 2013 against Russian side FK Zorkiy at St Andrew's in front of a crowd of 1,062 and is now ready for the Champions League challenge with her new club.
At international level, Earps has represented England at Under-15, Under-17, Under-19 and Under-23 level, reaching the European finals with the Under-19s in 2012. More recently Mary has been selected for Mark Sampson's next training camp with the England senior squad.
Mary is looking to progress on the international stage and in the WSL and said: "I came to Bristol for development purposes and for regular game time. It's important for me to be playing regular football.
"I'm really excited to build on the success [of the club] from last season. I'm joining a strong squad and I want us as a team to be successful in all competitions."
Earps joins England Under-23 colleagues Jemma Rose and Jaz Matthews at Bristol Academy and manager Dave Edmondson is excited for the future for these three promising young players. "Mary fits Bristol perfectly as she is a young ambitious goalkeeper, eager to develop herself as a player over the next two seasons," he said. "Mary is a young goalkeeper with many positive attributes and huge potential. Her work ethic and determination to succeed coupled with the intensive training she will get from goalkeeper coach, John Granville, will help Mary develop into a vital member of the Bristol team.
"Mary has shown undoubted qualities as a goalkeeper both in her time at Doncaster Belles and Birmingham which have elevated her into the Under-23 and now senior England squads. She is keen, as are we, to further develop her as a goalkeeper and to provide her the platform to enhance her international standing with consistent performances at club level."
Chairman Simon Arnold said: "We are over the moon to sign a young up and coming player like Mary, our ethos is all about developing players, and with the facilities and back room staff available at Bristol, we believe she has come to the best club in the country for her to progress."
Mary will make her first appearance for the club this Sunday as the Vixens travel to Watford on Sunday for a pre-season friendly.
