Shannon Albuery has rejoined Pompey Women on loan from Super League side Yeovil Town.

The forward left the Blues in September on a permanent deal, and has thus far endured a frustrating spell with the Somerset outfit due to a lack of match minutes and an injury setback.

Now she links back up with Pompey, where she spent the entire 2017/18 season, in search of more playing time.
 
On Albuery's return, Blues boss Jay Sadler said: "It's a bittersweet feeling. From a development point of view, following her progression to the highest level was a proud moment.
 
"Unfortunately, for whatever reason, it hasn’t worked as she would have liked, so I’m obviously gutted for her because of that."
 
Albuery made a fine start to 2018/19 for Pompey – netting three times in four games – most notably scoring a 'rabona' finish against C&K Basildon on the opening day of the season, prior to her move to the top tier of women's football.
 
And Basildon will also be the opponents this Sunday, as Sadler's side aim for back-to-back wins to start the new year.
 
Make sure to head down to the PMC Stadium this Sunday (2pm kick off) to see if Pompey Women can make it a second successive National League South victory against the division's basement side.
