Jarrett Leaves London City And Could Be Coming Back Home To Wexford

On Monday, London City Lionesses that Republic of Ireland international Rianna Jarrett has left the club by mutual agreement…

Jarrett joined from Brighton and Hove Albion in July 2021, scoring five goals in 18 appearances, but she spent most of the time on the side-lines due to injuries that she picked up.

In a statement released on the club’s website, they confirmed the departure.

“The Lionesses can confirm that we have reached an agreement with the 28-year-old, allowing her to seek new opportunities elsewhere,” a club statement read.

“It’s bittersweet to be leaving London City after just 18 months, but I’m excited for the challenge ahead,” added Jarrett. “It was a tough decision to make but one that I needed to make for myself.

“Being sidelined for 12 months has placed things into perspective for me and, although it has been great to be back on the pitch for London City, I believe now is the right time to go home to try and build fitness and enjoy playing football again.”

“I’d like to say thank you to London City for the opportunity over the last 18 months, but — more importantly — understanding my decision to leave. I have some very fond memories from my time at the club and have met some amazing people.

“I wish the girls and management nothing but the best in their remaining games and hopefully I will be back cheering them on at some point when they push to win the league.”

While the statement shouldn’t be analysed in too much detail, one piece of information does stand out. She stated that it’s the right time to “go home” which could suggest that she may be interested in playing in the League of Ireland.

Given the fact that the Wexford Youths Women’s team are a formidable outfit and given her connection to Wexford, it would not be a huge surprise to see Jarrett lining out for Wexford in the future. Whether that future is soon, however, remains to be seen.
