Wrexham AFC Women are delighted to confirm the signing of highly-rated Welsh starlet Ava Suckley, who has made the switch from Stoke City.
Suckley, a former Wales Under-17 international, progressed through the development pathway at the FA Women’s National League Northern Premier Division side.
She played for the Club’s development team in the 2020/21 season, made her first first-team appearance in the summer and then proved a key player for Stoke’s reserves last season.
A goal on the final day of the season confirmed her as the team’s top scorer after a productive campaign, as they finished fifth in the Midlands Reserves’ league.
But the Holt-based teenager has turned down the option to stay with the Potters in order to make the move to North Wales, where she will be eligible to play for both Gareth Owen’s Under-19s team and the senior team.
And on signing for Wrexham, she said: “I used to come to the Racecourse when I was younger and watch Wrexham, and everything going on now is so good for the Club, the town and everyone.
“It’s exciting, and so worth signing here.
“I’m hard-working, I’m very determined; I like to score lots of goals, and I hope I can help the Under-19s win the league again.”
Head of Female Football and Wrexham AFC Women Under-19s assistant manager, Gemma Owen, added: “We’re extremely pleased to have Ava joining us to play across both our Under-19s and First Team.
“To be able to attract a player such as Ava to Wrexham further supports our intent as a club.
“She is a very bright player who fits in perfectly with the ambition and drive of our club and we look forward to seeing her display her fantastic talent in a Wrexham shirt.”
