Arsenal Ladies sign Jemma Rose

Arsenal Ladies have completed the signing of Jemma Rose from Bristol Academy.

The 22-year-old defender spent the past four seasons with the Vixens, captaining the club from summer 2014.

An England youth international, Rose was named the FA WSL Young Player of the Year at the 2011 FA Women's Awards. She also collected the Goal of the Season award for her long range free-kick against Doncaster Rover Belles.

Gunners manager Pedro Martinez Losa said: “Jemma is a player who will fit in very well at Arsenal. She is a good technical player, able to play out from the back. She is good in the air and athletic too. She is a young player with lots of potential and I look forward to working with her.”

Everyone at Arsenal would like to welcome Jemma to the club.
