LILY SIMKIN

Defender

Biography

Simkin made her First Team debut in November 2019 at the age of just 16.

The England Under-17 international came on as substitute at Brighton & Hove Albion and then started the next match against Chelsea.

The young defender signed a new two-year contract during the Summer of 2021, extending her association with the Club.

The right-back, who can also play centre-half, was calm, assured and purposeful.

Now she is a fully-fledged member of the First Team squad after completing her progression through the RTC and Academy ranks.

Football is in the genes for Simkin. Her father, Darren, played for Wolves in the 1990s. He was also a right-back and centre-half.

It was no surprise that she began playing herself and at a young age she joined her local club, Wyrley Juniors.
