Defender Lauren Townsend has become the fourth Wales international to sign for Bristol Academy for the 2015 season.

The 24-year-old has spent the last seven years playing with Cardiff City Ladies and has 14 international caps.

Townsend's Wales team-mates Hayley Ladd, Nadia Lawrence and Sharla Passariello agreed deals with the Vixens last month.

"Lauren is a good technical player who can offer an attacking threat from defence," said boss Dave Edmondson.

"Her ability and attitude has thoroughly impressed us in training. She is a strong addition to the team and one I am looking forward to working with over the season."
