Brampton talent Carla Humphrey is to launch a new chapter in her career.

The 20 year-old has joined FA Women’s Superleague Division One side Bristol City from Arsenal Ladies.

Humphrey, who can play as a midfielder or a forward, spent more than a decade with the Gunners after being spotted playing grassroots football as a youngster.

Speaking to the City website, Humphrey said: “As soon as I heard the club were interested, I didn’t hesitate in going down to meet with the manager.

“The facilities are fantastic and I was encouraged by the vision of the club coming back into WSL 1.

“They are here to stay and the willingness to grow as a club matches my ambition as a player. I want to play regular football to develop and I believe Bristol City Women is the best place for me to do that.”

Humphey made 23 senior appearances for Arsenal Ladies, scoring three goals. She also gained valuable top-flight experience when spending last season on loan at Doncaster Belles.

She has also represented England at Under 17 and Under 20 levels.
