We are delighted to announce that Lioness Lotte Wubben-Moy has joined us from the University of North Carolina.
Lotte joined our Centre of Excellence in 2013 before making her senior debut two years later, as a substitute during a 2-1 win over Notts County. The centre back, who can also play in holding midfield, went on to make 13 first-team appearances for us before moving to the University of North Carolina in 2017 to play for the North Carolina Tar Heels.
During her time with UNC, Lotte won the ACC regular season twice, the ACC Women’s Soccer Tournament twice and was part of a team that were two-time runners up in the NCAA Division College Cup.
This month, Lotte also received her first senior Lionesses call-up for England’s September training squad.
“I’m delighted to say that I’m officially a Gooner,” the 21-year-old said. “To see that this club can play at the highest levels, achieving the things that they do while also playing such exquisite football, that is definitely something that’s drawn me to the club. I just can’t wait to be a part of it.”
“I’m very happy we’ve got this one over the line,” said head coach Joe Montemurro. “Lotte is obviously a player that when I first came in was about to leave for the US. All credit to the club for keeping tabs on her development whilst she was away, and then obviously securing a player that is in and around the England camp. She will be a top player.”
The deal is subject to the completion of regulatory processes.
