Pompey Women are delighted to announce that defender Sammy Quayle has returned to the club.

The defender is starting her second stint with the Blues, having departed following the conclusion of the 2017/18 campaign.

She went on to join newly-promoted Lewes in the Championship, featuring for them until the end of last term.

Quayle appeared as a striker during her first Pompey and topped the club's scoring charts in successive seasons – hitting 17 goals in 24 appearances in 2016/17, then striking 18 times in 29 games in 2017/18

She said: "It’s a great opportunity for me to work with Jay (Sadler) again – I loved working with him previously.

"I think the club has made some really good strides, have made some great signings and I think it’s a really exciting time to be part of this team for the upcoming season."

"She brings a wealth of Championship experience and is a very direct player, who will add tremendous pace, flair and creativity to the team."

Blues boss Sadler added: "I’m delighted to welcome Sammy back to the football club. I’ve watched her development closely and I was really surprised at her departure from Lewes.

"She epitomises the type of player we want to bring to the club. She brings a wealth of Championship experience and is a very direct player, who will add tremendous pace, flair and creativity to the team.

"Off the pitch, Sammy’s infectious and warming persona will rub off on everyone. Not only will she fit right in with the current group, but I’m sure all the fans will be delighted to see her wearing blue once again.

"I feel the club is now in a much better position to give her the platform she needs to express herself, gain more confidence and start performing at the highest level. I’m really excited to be working with her once again."
