West Ham United forward Leah Cowan has become Brentwood Town's sixth summer signing on the eve of the new Eastern Region League season.
The teenager, who has been handed squad number 20, joins Blues on a dual-registration basis with the Hammers having trialled with the newly promoted Premier Division club during pre-season. Nikki appeared in the friendlies against South East Combination sides Ipswich Town and Tottenham Hotspur and boss Ian Bent was pleased to announce his latest capture.
"Leah's signing adds further attacking quality to the squad and builds on an excellent summer of acquisitions," he said. "Leah has the ability and experience already to be a real asset to this football club as we look to push on and compete in the Premier Division of the Eastern Region Women's Football League.
"I'm delighted with the squad we have assembled and we now not only have options across the pitch but real competition for places in every position which will be vital at this level. In adding new faces to the squad we have managed to keep the excellent team spirit this group of players has."
Nikki, who can also operate either as a forward or in an attacking midfield role, joined West Ham in 2009 after playing at Arsenal's Centre of Excellence, where she appeared alongside current Town talents Dominique Hume and Nikita Whinnett.
The youngster made two substitute appearances for the East London outfit's first team in the FA Women's Premier League Southern Division last season against Brighton & Hove Albion and Fulham as well as obtaining further action as a replacement in the Premier League Cup against Millwall Lionesses. She made 12 additional appearances for the Hammers' second string, scoring a consolation goal against Bristol Academy.
In addition to Cowan, Bent has brought Nikki Allen, Toni Brown, Jess Tuffen, Stacey Turner and Whinnett into his squad as they prepare to embark on their inaugural campaign in the ERWFL Premier Division.
