LONDON — Pensacola FC center back Hannah Godfrey has signed with Tottenham Hotspur ahead of the North London club’s first season in the FA Women’s Super League.
Godfrey scored seven goals during the 2019 season for Pensacola, who won the WPSL league championship last month. She played four years with the club and started in the 2018 WPSL Championship match.
A Thornton-Cleveleys, England native, Godfrey also played four seasons at the University of South Alabama.
The 22-year-old is Pensacola’s 20th professional signing (17 international, three NWSL) since the club joined the league in 2012.
"We are thrilled that Hannah has realized her dream of signing a pro contract back home in England," Pensacola FC coach David Kemp said. "She gave us four years of leadership, hard work and fun. She's a joy to be around, and we look forward to watching this next chapter of her career."
