The team at the Bristol Academy Women's Football Club are again celebrating with the signing of their latest ambassador, Alex Windell.
Mark Sampson, Bristol Academy WFC Manager comments: "We are delighted to confirm that full back Alex Windell has agreed to become an ambassador with the Bristol Academy Women's Football Club. Alex will now work with our other ambassadors in her full time position with the Club."
Having 20-year-old Alex in the squad is a real testament to the relationship between Filton College and the Bristol Academy Women's Football Club as Alex is another fine example of a Bristol squad member who as a local girl has come through the ranks at the Vixens. Alex started her football education at BAWFC's Centre of Excellence and she then progressed through to the Female Football Academy at Filton College.
Kevin Hamblin, Principal of Filton College and BAWFC board member adds: "Alex was a regular last season in the BAWFC first team. She is not only another excellent signing for the Club but an example to all young girls in the west country of what can be possible at Bristol Academy WFC in partnership with Filton College."
Manager Mark Sampson was delighted to confirm Alex's new role with the Club, saying: "Alex is a great addition to the group. She is still very young and will only get better with day to day training. Alex has come through the ranks here at Filton College and at BAWFC and is another example of the club's philosophy in developing our own. She is another superb demonstration of the fantastic work that goes on at our Centre of Excellence and academy at Filton College."
Bristol Academy are one of the eight founding teams in the new FA WSL which kicks off in April 2011 and sees the team moving to their new stadium at Filton College's Stoke Gifford Campus. The new ground is the first purpose-built women's football stadium in Britain.
Lillie Bilson has become the latest signing to join up with Academy's WSL squad. She left Arsenal last summer to join Watford in Premier League where she has been a regular for Watford this season, scoring two goals.
Lillie said: "After visiting the club and meeting the manager and players, I knew Bristol was the place I wanted to be. I have really enjoyed my time at Watford and thank Neil all the coaching staff and my team mates for their support during my time at the club.
"Now I am really excited about my future at Bristol Academy and am looking forward to working hard and fighting for my place in the team."
