Wexford’s Rianna Jarrett was one of nine players to be released by Brighton..
“We have had to make some tough decisions and it’s always a difficult time when players are released,” former England player and Brighton women’s manager Powell said.
“I’d like to thank all the girls who are leaving for their tremendous efforts during their time with the club, especially in the last year when the pandemic has challenged everyone.
“They will always be welcome visitors to Brighton, and we will do all we can to assist them if they decide to stay in the professional game.
Jarrett has since issued a classy statement to Twitter thanking the club for the opportunity.
She joined Brighton and Hove Albion in 2019.
On her debut last night against Crystal Palace in the FA Cup, Jarrett found the net twice which was one of her most memorable moments with the club.
The Wexford woman is now seeking a new club.
