Albuery Returns To Pompey Women

Forward back with the Blues

31 October 2020

Shannon Albuery has switched red for blue as she returns to Pompey Women.

The forward initially left the Blues during the 2018/19 season to join Super League side Yeovil, but later returned on loan.

She featured 14 times for the club and scored seven goals during that stint, including the equaliser in a Hampshire Cup quarter-final against Southampton.

Albuery then joined the south coast rivals and scored 14 times in 34 outings during her debut campaign.

She now links back up with Pompey, where she has found the net on a total of 19 occasions in 46 times over the course of two years.

"To be able to bring Shan back home is a fantastic moment for us."

Jay Sadler

Blues boss Jay Sadler said: “To be able to bring Shan back home is a fantastic moment for us.

“She’s a player who I have a lot of admiration for, having worked with her in the past, and she possesses a lot of qualities that will only make this squad stronger.

“Obviously we’re a little light in the forward area, with Jade Widdows and Tamsin de Bunsen on the sidelines, so having more competition and depth will certainly help us moving forward.”

Albuery, who is known for her skilful style of play, added: “I’m delighted to be back at Pompey. It’s a club I know well and I have good relationships with the players and staff here, which will make it easier for me settle in.”
