Riglar added to Albion Women ranks

WBA Women Grace Riglar

Albion Women have added Grace Riglar to their ranks from Leicester City Women on a loan deal until Christmas, with an option to extend.

The 19-year-old defender joins from the FA Women’s Championship outfit, having previously spent seven years at Super League side, Bristol City.

Riglar is the fifth signing of the summer for Albion Women, and she says she can't wait to get started with the Baggies.

"I'm really excited to play for West Bromwich Albion, I'm looking forward to getting out there and getting some minutes under my belt," Grace said.

"Hopefully the Club can help me to develop my game and at the same time I can help them win games," she said.

As part of the loan agreement, Grace can be recalled at any time from her parent club, but Albion Women Head Coach, Louis Sowe, hopes the move will benefit both parties.

"We're delighted that Leicester felt this was a good environment to send her to and hopefully this will be a good move for all parties involved," he said.

"We're really excited to have Grace join us on loan, she will add quality and depth to our back line and help push competition within the squad in that area of the pitch," Sowe said.

Grace will look to secure her first appearance in an Albion shirt as the squad travel away to Loughborough Foxes tonight in a 7:45pm kick off.
