Poppy Pattinson has high hopes for Brighton in WSL

The much-anticipated post-Euros WSL campaign kicks off tonight with the Seagulls’ game at Arsenal, the first game on the agenda (7:30pm).

The action was postponed last weekend as a mark of respect following the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

Pattinson was one of several new players to arrive this summer while some favorites left.

The former Everton left-back said: “We’ve had a good pre-season.

“I’ve settled in very well and I’m looking forward to it.

“It’s a new group but I feel like we’re a really good fit.

“You made me feel very welcome.

“I played with a couple of girls when I was in England.

“I know a few of the faces, but other than that it’s pretty new to me too.”

Pennington, who hails from Sunderland, says the fact that Hope Powell is Albion’s boss was a big factor in her journey south.

She added: “From the very first conversation with Hope, there was a huge attraction.

“She obviously put that trust and belief in me.

“She is a legend of football and I want to be a part of it, learn and grow as a player.”

Albion’s first home game of the season takes place against Reading in a week’s time on Sunday.

They were due to play Aston Villa last weekend but Powell said the postponement worked in their favour.

She said: “It was very sad news but we moved on with it.

“In retrospect, stopping the game actually did us a favor because many national players had just returned.

“That would have meant a day of preparation for a very tough game.”

Arsenal’s squad includes England Euro-winning stars Leah Williamson and Beth Mead. Tickets for the Reading game at the Amex are available online via the Albion website, priced at £10 for adults and £5 for concession tickets.
