Durham Women FC are delighted to announce the signing of German defender Jenny Bitzer.
Bitzer, 23, joins the Wildcats having impressed during a spell training with the side and offers some versatility across the back line.
Predominantly a full back, the utility player has starred for Durham University in their BUCS Premier League North triumph and will now look to make her mark on the FA WSL.
Having represented 1899 Hoffenheim in her native Germany while still only a teenager, Bitzer then moved stateside to team up with Louisiana State University.
Her impressive form with the Techsters prompted a move to Manhattan College where she became an integral part of the defence, ending her senior year as a MAAC All-Academic Team Honoree thanks to her performance on the pitch and in the classroom.
As well as representing her college, Bitzer also turned out for New Jersey Copa FC during the 2016 season.
Now, Bitzer is keen to push on with the Wildcats as they look to continue their push up FA WSL 2.
Upon signing, Bitzer said: "It's great to be here. "I've been in Durham for a few months now and it's been great so far.
"I'm very fast and I see myself as athletic and quick, so I like playing on the wing and taking people on as well as defending.
"I think the FA WSL is going to be a really good challenge and I'm looking forward to the test and competing in this kind of environment."
Manager Lee Sanders added: "Jenny has been training with the squad for a while now and played some games with our reserve team.
"The coaching staff and myself felt she needed to come into the first team squad as her attitude in training has been excellent."
"She's quick, technically sound and looks to get forward as well as being able to defend and can play a number of positions so is going to be a valuable addition to the squad going into the second half of the season.
"We've got real competition for places now and if someone gets an injury or performances take a dip then we've got players who can step in which is something we've not really had in past seasons."
Jenny will wear the number 18 shirt for the Wildcats.
