Experienced attacking midfielder...
Laura Coombs joined City in June 2019 on a two-year deal, following the expiration of her contract at Liverpool.
Coombs brings with her a wealth of domestic experience, having represented Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea (amongst others), helping the latter to a league and cup double in 2015.
The 28-year-old also competed in America’s W-League with the Los Angeles Strikers, and hopes her experiences will help Nick Cushing’s side to emulate this year’s cup double-winning success.
She describes herself as an ‘aggressive, box-to-box midfielder’, who likes to play football the right way and contribute with goals. As a result, she feels she and City create the perfect match.
Coombs started life with Charlton Athletic, then Arsenal's academy and spent time on loan at Nottingham Forest and LA Strikers before joining Chelsea in 2011 whee she would remain for the next seasons.
After loan spells with Barnet, a second jaunt with LA Strikers and Liverpool, she moved to the Merseysiders permanently in 2017.
She has won two England caps to date.
