We are delighted to announce ex-Peterborough United & Cambridge United striker Jess Harvey has joined our Women's team!
Following the completion of her degree at Hartpury, Jess has been looking for the right club in the local area to make her long anticipated return to football and after recently attending our training sessions, we are pleased to welcome Jess as an exciting addition to our First Team!
Jess said "From the moment I was introduced to the squad, I knew it was the right place to be. Everything just clicked. The players and coaches were welcoming from the start and what can you say about the environment here at the Tigerturf Stadium. It's just brilliant! I know it will take a little time to get myself back to where I know I can be but I can't wait to get started."
Chris Hill Women's First Team Manager had this to say "I'm delighted to welcome Jess to Gloucester City Women. She has been highly sought after by a number of clubs in the area and I am so pleased that she feels that this club is the right place for her to get her football journey back underway. She may say she needs a little time to get her back to her previous levels and of course we will support her in that, but she has looked sharp in training and it won't be long until she is back at her best!"
We also have some positive injury news, with our Summer arrival Lauren Peck looking to return to training next week. FA Youth Cup winner Lauren has been undergoing an extensive period of rehabilitation and we can't wait to see her make her debut.
Jess Harvey will go straight into the squad ahead of this weekend's home clash with Bristol Rovers Development which takes place on Sunday 2PM at the TigerTurf Stadium. Tickets cost £3 for Adults, and Children & GCAFC Season Ticket Holders get in free!
