Albion Sign Danish Defender

By James Hilsum • 05 July 2019

Brighton & Hove Albion have completed the signing of Denmark under-23 defender Matilde Skovsen on a one-year contract, subject to international clearance.

The 20-year-old has signed a one-year deal after leaving Danish Elitedivisionen side VSK Aarhus, where she began her career.

Manager Hope Powell said, “We are delighted to welcome Matilde to the club, as she is a player that we have been tracking for some time.

“For someone so young, she has already gained plenty of experience playing at the top level in Denmark and will add to the competition for places in the defensive areas.

“I am very much looking forward to working with her throughout the season, and excited to see how much she will progress at the club.”

Skovsen also had a spell at Paris St Germain, and was part of the Denmark squad that reached the semi-finals of the UEFA Women’s Under-19 Championship in 2018.

She becomes the second women’s team signing of the summer transfer window, after the arrival of Netherlands international Danique Kerkdijk.

Season tickets are available to purchase for the 2019/20 Barclays FA Women’s Super League season, priced at £30 for adults and £10 for under-18s.
