Wilkinson Leaves Villa Ladies
Aston Villa Ladies can confirm that Katie Wilkinson has left the club.
Lifelong Villa fan Wilkinson has enjoyed two spells in claret and blue and originally came through the club’s Centre of Excellence.She made a 2013 switch to neighbours Birmingham City in order to sample Super League and Champions League football before returning in June 2014.She has been a valuable member of the club in both spells.
Aston Villa Ladies would like to wish Katie the best of luck with the next part of her journey and would like to thank her for all her hard work, passion and commitment over the years.
Iain Sankey, Head Coach, said: “Katie has been an excellent member of the first team squad this season. “Unfortunately her playing time has been limited after coming back from a long term injury which she picked up last season. “When she has played she has always given her best and we are reluctant to let her go as we believe that she would still have a lot to offer us when she is fully fit.“However we could not offer her the playing time that she requires at this stage so she has decided to leave the club to get more minutes on the pitch. “I would like to thank her for her contribution this season and wish her all the best for the future.”
