London Bees are thrilled to announce the signing of Nikita Whinnett!

The striker joins the Club on the back of a spell with Crystal Palace, where she was a firm fan favorite with the Eagles faithful.

The 28-year-old has been brought into Lee Burch’s side to add vital goals, with Whinnett having previous experience in the FA Women’s Championship with Tottenham Hotspur Women and her former club Palace.

Bees boss Burch has highlighted the striker’s personal attributes as well as her ability as one of the main reasons he wanted to bring Whinnett to The Hive.

“I’m really pleased to have signed Nikita, she’s a great character and brings good energy to the group.  On top of that, she has had an immediate impact in the pre-season games she has played. She has shown her clear qualities as a footballer and I’m looking forward to working with her”

Welcome to London Bees, Nikita!
