Official: Brighton Hove Albion Signs Nigerian Striker Ini Umotong



Nigeria female football international Ini Umotong has joined English Women Football side Brighton Hove Albion.

Umotong who bagged first class honours from the University of Southampton spent just a year with fellow FAWSL 2 side Oxford. She played against the Seagulls when the two sides contested a 1-1 draw in last season’s FAWSL Spring Series

According to the Women’s first-team assistant manager Amy Merricks, she said, “Ini is a player that we have monitored for a while, and is someone we were well aware of after her spells at both Portsmouth and Oxford.

“She is a proven goalscorer and will add a new dimension to our forward options for the upcoming FAWSL 2 season,” he told the club website.


Prior to joining Oxford, the 23-year old Nigerian international had a prolific spell at Portsmouth, scoring 29 goals in their 2014/15 FA Women’s Premier League Southern Division title-winning campaign.
