Scotland Under-19 international Georgia Brown has penned a new deal to keep her at the U’s until 2021.
17-year-old Georgia Brown starred for Crowmarsh at youth level before being snapped up by the U’s in 2018. Since then, she has linked up with Cheltenham Town on loan as part of a strategic player development partnership between the two clubs. An agreement put in place by Robinesses’ now-former manager Alex Chael and Liam Gilbert shortly after he was appointed first-team manager.
The talented teenager is usually found in the centre of the park, though she was known to cover as a centre-back during her time at Cheltenham, while her considerable height makes her an asset in both boxes. She brings a tremendous amount of potential, an eye for goal, and the composure to slot home a penalty when called upon.
Despite being cut short, the 2019/20 season proved to be a hugely successful one for Brown, as Head Coach Pauline Hamill rewarded her standout performances with a call-up to the Scotland Women’s Under-19s squad earlier in the year. She was also recognised by her peers over the course of the season to be voted Players’ Player of the Year for 2019/20.
Commenting on last season, Brown said: “I’ve been at Cheltenham playing matches, which has helped me develop, but training with the Oxford first team and playing with such talented players has helped me progress as well.”
