Peterborough United Women delightfully sign Notts County’s Emily Brett for the 2023/24 FA Women’s National League Division One Midlands campaign.
Having started the initial half of the season with Notts County Women and scoring four goals in 11 games, Brett now stands as Dan Lawlor’s sixth signing for the 2023/24 campaign. This move enhances his attacking options, with the team having already scored 39 goals in 13 games this season.
With stints at Doncaster Rovers Belles, Loughborough Lightning, and experience as a professional in Iceland, the forward is eagerly anticipating her role in the front-line. She emphasized that the club’s progress played a crucial role in solidifying her decision.

Brett said: “I’m very excited to have joined the club. I spoke to Dan and he had big ambitions for the team and me as a player. I felt it was a no-brainer for me at this point in my career because I’m at the age where I’m looking for this ambition and felt it was the right calling for me and the right time in my career to challenge myself. Also, the club’s culture, the facilities and Dan’s ambitions for the team are all parts that drew me to the club.”
“I recently had a spell in Iceland to play pro football, but unfortunately came back early due to injury. It was a really good experience out there, completely different physicality to the game, learning a new language and just playing every single day as you don’t realise how much that can help with your development as a player.”
“I have seen the wingers and watched a few videos, so I roughly know how they play and I obviously played against them, but hoping to be around the box and getting on the end of some crosses. I’m just excited to get going and I cannot wait to work alongside the girls.”
Furthermore Brett will wear the number 18 shirt for the FA Women’s National League campaign and participate in the upcoming fixture against Long Buckby AFC this weekend.
