Bristol Academy have boosted their squad going into the second half of the FA WSL season by signing Yeovil Town goalkeeper Alice Evans.
Vixens supporters will remember her from the Yeovil match in May where Alice delivered an outstanding performance and kept a clean sheet. Prior to the Yeovil match, only Chelsea and Lincoln Ladies (now Notts County) have managed to keep a clean sheet at the Stoke Gifford Stadium since September 2012.
Having signed Mary Earps at the start of the campaign following Siobhan Chamberlain's departure, Vixens manager Dave Edmondson was keen to get more depth in this area. He said: "I saw Alice play for Yeovil a couple of times and each time she was excellent. She has also showed a real desire to develop herself and is willing to work hard at her game.
"With Alice and Mary Earps we have two very good young goalkeepers at the club and they will provide each other the competition required to continue their development."
Alice is looking forward to getting started with the Vixens and highlighted her desire to progress in her football career. She said: "At Bristol there is a better opportunity to progress and play at the highest standard with top quality players. I'd heard how good the training was here at Bristol and there's a lot more goalkeeper specific sessions which I needed to develop my game further."
Evans is eager to get working with Goalkeeping Coach John Granville and England Under-23 keeper Mary Earps. "I'm really excited to have signed and I'm just looking forward to getting started properly with Bristol," she admitted.
