Midfielder joins the Bees from Durham
Versatile midfielder Nicola Gibson, 25, has signed for London Bees and makes the move south after two seasons with Durham.
Speaking on her arrival at The Hive, Nicola is looking forward to pushing herself to the next level.
"I think at London Bees I will be given the opportunity to compete and really take my game to the next level. I am looking forward to working with Luke and helping the team be successful.
"The Hive is a fantastic facility and a really professional environment to be a part of. All teams are treated equally and made to feel part of the club.
"The Championship will be a tough, competitive league. It sounds a cliche but there really will be no easy games. Consistency will be key, I think Bees have great potential to push for the top spots.
"From day 1, the coaching staff at London Bees have really made me feel welcome and part of the team. The girls have been fantastic and I can’t wait to get started.
"As we get towards the business end of pre-season, I think match fitness and sharpness will be key. As a team, we will look to build a cement those relationships on the field and within our positional units. We want to make sure we are hard to break down and clinical in front of goal.
Head Coach Luke Swindlehurst added:
"I'd like to welcome Nicola to the club on behalf of all the players and staff.
"I've been impressed by her attitude and work rate over pre-season.
"Nicola is a good reader of the game and has some excellent defensive qualities. Her physical attributes will definitely give us some added steel which at times is a key requirement of this league. We look forward to seeing more of her in a London Bees shirt."
