TURNER SHOWS RIGHT ATTITUDE TO LEAD CITY


THE door continues to revolve at Bristol City with Belgian international Julie Biesmans signing from Standard Liege.

The 23-year-old, who has spent nine years at Liege, has represented her country throughout the age groups and made her senior debut for Bel- gium in 2011, going on to play 49 times to date.

Biesmans said that she was impressed with the City set-up. ‘This club puts emphasis on developing young players and the style of football that the club play appeals to me,’ she said.

City manager Willie Kirk has appointed 21-year-old midfielder or defender Mil- lie Turner club captain with long-serving Welsh international midfielder Loren Dykes as her deputy.

‘Millie leads by example on and off the pitch and epitomises what I expect from all of the players at this club,’ said Kirk.

‘We have a great culture that Millie really buys in to; she’s a big character in the dressing-room and always has a smile on her face.

‘Loren’s attitude and professionalism is second to none. She also embodies what this club is about, giving 100 per cent every time she pulls on the jersey.’

Meanwhile City quartet Sophie Hillyerd, Annabelle Thomas, Ellie Brindley and Daisy Ackerman have been selected for an England under-15 training camp at St George’s Park this month.
