UNC Wilmington women’s soccer signs English forward Issy Bryant

WILMINGTON, North Carolina UNC Wilmington women’s soccer head coach Chris Neal has announced the addition of English forward Issy Bryant to the Seahawks’ 2022 roster.

Bryant will join the Seahawk program following two club seasons with Ipswich Town Academy, the developmental branch of Ipswich Town F.C. Women, under manager Joe Sheehan.

The Cambridge, England, product has also played for the England women’s national team, participating most recently with the country’s U18 squad.

“I am excited to add Issy to the squad. She is a powerful attacking personality that can play multiple positions,” said Neal. “She is a tough competitor who is tenacious in both the attacking and defending phases.

“Her playing experiences with England and Ipswich Town will serve her well in our league. Our team is very excited about her arrival.”

The 5-4 striker made four appearances for the Ipswich Women’s-First club during the 2021-22 season. Bryant tallied the second penalty goal in extra time to down Southampton F.C. and advance Ipswich to the FA Cup Quarterfinals on Feb. 27.

Bryant will be the fourth Seahawk player, since 2019, that has represented their country in international competition.
