Pompey Women Sign Ella Humphrey

18-year-old pens dual agreement

29 October 2022

Pompey Women have completed the signing of Ella Humphrey on a dual-registration deal with Brighton & Hove Albion.

The Welsh under-19 international has been at the Seagulls for 10 years and currently plays in the WSL Academy with their under-21 side.

The nature of the agreement means she can train and play for Brighton, as well as being available to do the same for the Blues.

The attack-minded player will bring versatility to Jay Sadler’s side, having featured in most positions on the pitch.

She started up top for the Albion in Pompey’s 3-2 friendly victory at Fratton Park in July and scored both of their goals.

"As well as her attacking threat, the enthusiasm Ella has for the game shone through in her work-rate and tenacity, both with and against the ball."

Blues boss Jay Sadler said: “It was in pre-season when she first caught our attention, scoring  in front of a big crowd, at Fratton Park.

"As well as her attacking threat, the enthusiasm Ella has for the game shone through in her work-rate and tenacity, both with and against the ball.

"She has a high level of game understanding, which allows for tactical flexibility with positioning.

"We know she’s been playing central with Brighton – howeverm with Wales they’ve utilised her wider.

"We have a good track record for developing younger talent, and as excited as we are to work with her, we’re just as grateful to Brighton for agreeing this move."
