After a successful spell on loan at Bristol City in 2016, Jodie Brett is back for another six months, and she’s thrilled.

“I loved it last year, the experience I got from it – match time, being in this environment, the girls we’ve got here,” she enthused. “It’s a really good place.”

The 20-year-old midfielder is on loan at the newly promoted club from Chelsea, and is excited to be able to make her mark in the upcoming Women’s Super League 1 Spring Series.

“The Spring Series gives us an opportunity to go in a bit unknown, get a real feel for the league, see where we are and what we need to do,” she said.

Coach Willie Kirk’s squad has some fresh faces, including Brighton star Lily Agg, plus plenty of long-time servants who have committed their futures to the club, such as the veteran Corinne Yorston. Brett thinks they have a team who can perform well in the top-flight.

“It’s really exciting,” she added. “Last year we had quite a lot of injuries, so the people who were injured and are now returning back to training, it’s like they are new players.

“It makes it a really competitive environment.”

As for Brett, she’s fully focused on doing her best for City, and isn’t distracted by thoughts of her parent club.

“I take each game as it comes,” she said. “I’ve just got to perform.”
