Manchester City Women sign young player of the year Lauren Hemp

Manchester City Women have signed PFA Young Player of the Year Lauren Hemp from Bristol City.

The promising 17-year-old scored nine goals during an impressive 2017-18 campaign in the Women’s Super League.

Her Bristol City side finished eighth and she moves to the team that finished runners-up behind Chelsea and qualified for next season’s Champions League.

“I’m very excited to be here,” Hemp told “It’s a massive opportunity for me and I can’t wait to get started.

“The facilities are amazing and the atmosphere seems so nice with the environment and the people. Playing against City for Bristol, I always looked up to the City players and now we’re going to be team-mates. I can’t wait.”
