Riva Casley Signs For Pompey Women

Defender arrives on south coast

21 July 2023

Pompey Women are delighted to announce the signing of Riva Casley.

The defender arrives on the south coast following her departure from Oxford and will wear the number 27 shirt.

Casley captained the Yellows for the second half of the 2022/23 campaign, leading the side through a fiercely-contested title race with Watford, Ipswich and the Blues.

She began her career at Oxford before enjoying spells in the Championship with Millwall and Charlton Athletic.

Casley returned to United in 2021 and made 60 appearances for the club before leaving in June

"Riva’s best years are ahead of her, yet she still arrives with a wealth of experience and pedigree at this level and higher."

Jay Sadler

Blues boss Jay Sadler said: "Riva is a player we have admired for some time, having had a huge impact on Oxford’s recent title challenge.

"She has developed into a real leader and possesses similar values and ambitions to those of me and the club.

"As a defender she has all the attributes we are looking for. She is strong in the air, good in 1v1 situations and is extremely progressive with her technical qualities.

"At 24, Riva’s best years are ahead of her, yet she still arrives with a wealth of experience and pedigree at this level and higher.

"We are confident she can thrive in our environment and within our system. She is another talented addition to the squad and someone who is only going to make us stronger."
