Nottingham Forest Women are delighted to announce the signing of England youth international Lucy Johnson ahead of the upcoming 2020-21 FA Women’s National League North season.
The full-back joins The Reds from FA Women’s Championship side Leicester City where she enjoyed an impressive 2019-20 campaign.
The 18-year-old spent the last two years with The Foxes where she also received several international call-ups.
Johnson most notably donned the Three Lions shirt last year as she played her part in England’s UEFA Women’s Under-17s European Championship campaign. She started all three of the Young Lionesses games and bagged herself a goal in the side’s second match in a 2-1 win over Austria.
On joining the club, Johnson said: “I’m delighted to have signed for The Reds and I’m so grateful for the opportunity the gaffer has given me. Let’s get this promotion show on the road.”
