Nigeria female football international Ini Umotong has joined English Women Football side Brighton Hove Albion.
Umotong who bagged first class honours from the University of Southampton spent just a year with fellow FAWSL 2 side Oxford. She played against the Seagulls when the two sides contested a 1-1 draw in last season’s FAWSL Spring Series
According to the Women’s first-team assistant manager Amy Merricks, she said, “Ini is a player that we have monitored for a while, and is someone we were well aware of after her spells at both Portsmouth and Oxford.
“She is a proven goalscorer and will add a new dimension to our forward options for the upcoming FAWSL 2 season,” he told the club website.
Prior to joining Oxford, the 23-year old Nigerian international had a prolific spell at Portsmouth, scoring 29 goals in their 2014/15 FA Women’s Premier League Southern Division title-winning campaign.
