Crystal Palace Women have announced the signing of Georgia Clifford from Oxford United.
The centre-back spent a season with Oxford in order to aid her recovery from an ACL injury that she sustained during her two seasons with Reading.
Clifford was crowned as the club’s Player of the Season last year.
She helped Oxford United finish third in the FA Women’s National League Southern Premier Division.
Clifford said: “I’m really excited to join Palace as it has always been a club I have admired,”.
“The drive and determination within the staff and players to keep developing and to move higher within the women’s game is something I look for in a club.”
Eagles boss Dean Davenport added: “To return from a severe ACL in the manner in which Georgia has demonstrates the characteristics that I look for in our players.
“With Annabel [Johnson] named our new captain, Ffion joining and Amy [Goddard] playing in every game last season, Georgia adds further quality to an already impressive rear guard.”
Clifford becomes the fourth signing off the summer at Palace as Chloe Morgan, Ffion Morgan and Kate Natkiel have been brought in ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.
