Jasmine Matthews has signed for Liverpool FC Women, returning to the side after two seasons with Bristol City. The 28-year-old played with the Reds for the 2018/19 season, and brings experience and versatility to the dressing room, as she becomes the fourth signing this summer (and second from Bristol City).
Masters can play in defense and in midfield, and has been performing at a high level in the Womens Super League for the past two seasons.
She told Liverpoolfc.com that she’s “delighted” to be back with the Reds — and with her former manager.
“I’m delighted to be back. When I knew Matt was coming to Liverpool it was always on the radar to come back.
“I loved playing in front of the fans here, they build up a great atmosphere and I had a great relationship with the girls.
“Working with Matt at Bristol, he really got the best out of me so when we had a conversation it was always going to be a no-brainer.”
For his part, manager Matt Beard looks forward to working with Matthews.
“Jas is a very, very good footballer, she surprised me. She reads the game really well, technically she’s gifted, she can pass the ball well and she’s got great vision.
“She knows the football club, she’s versatile and can play centre-back or midfield, and she’s going to be a really good asset to the squad.”
She will wear the No. 6 shirt, and will hopefully contribute to a successful campaign for promotion.
