Brighton and Hove Albion have announced the return of the New Zealand international on a two-year contract, subject to international clearance. Stott originally joined the Seagulls in 2020 and made eight appearances, but had to cut her time short after being diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
Head coach Hope Powell said, “The circumstances around Stotty’s departure in 2021 were really difficult for everyone, no one more so than for her.
“Now she’s back to full fitness and wants to have a proper go at the WSL and we are happy to have her back. Taking the emotions out of the signing, we know we’re getting a really good player with proven international experience and a knowledge of the league.
“We’re really looking forward to working with Rebekah again.”
