Bronze, who moved to City from champions Liverpool in November 2014, became an important part of the Blues’ trophy successes, earning plenty of individual recognition along the way.
Admired for her pace, power and attacking prowess, Bronze helped Nick Cushing’s side to their first league title and second Continental Tyres Cup triumphs, whilst also playing a key role as City reached the semi-finals of the Champions League at the first attempt.
She made 59 appearances in sky blue in total, scoring 11 goals – including memorable strikes in the FA Cup and Continental Tyres Cup finals.
During her time at the Club, she represented England in the 2015 World Cup and 2017 Euros tournaments, as the Lionesses claimed a bronze medal in Canada and a semi-final spot in Holland. She famously scored twice at the World Cup and was named in its All-Star Team.
All at Manchester City thank Lucy for her contribution over the past two years and wish her the best of luck with her new experience.
