LLANDEILO woman and Welsh international footballer Ffion Morgan has been signed by Crystal Palace.

The 20-year-old, who has nine caps for Wales women, was picked up by the Eagles following a spell at Coventry United last season.

Morgan impressed Palace with her defensive capabilities in the first game of last season, when she marshalled a Coventry defence to a 0-0 draw against the South London side.

Manager, Dean Davenport said: “Ffion was one of the opposition players that stood out to us last year.

“Therefore when the opportunity to sign her came up, the club knew it was one that they needed to make happen.

“Having someone arrive with her international pedigree will be a big bonus to the side on and off the pitch, and is a great statement signing.

Morgan, who obtained her UEFA B coaching license whilst recovering from an ACL injury at 17, cannot wait to get started in south London.“I’m super excited to be part of the team at Crystal Palace,” she said.” I’m looking forward to a successful season.”

The club said they were delighted to sign the right back.
