Academy trio join Watford Women on loan

Arsenal academy trio Michelle Agyemang, Laila Harbert and Katie Reid will join Watford Women on loan for the 2023-24 season. Agyemang, Reid and Harbert were regulars in the Arsenal match day squad last season, especially during the second half of the campaign when injuries bit.

Reid and Harbert didn’t actually get onto the pitch but Agyemang did several times, helping herself to her first senior goal against Leeds in the FA Cup in January.

Agyemang also impressed at the U17 Euros earlier in the summer, scoring three goals for England. Harbert and Reid were both part of that squad too. Agyemang (17), Harbert (16) and Reid (16), are all England youth internationals and will hope over the fence at London Colney to play for the second tier side.

Agyemang has already agreed to sign a professional club contract with Arsenal when she turns 18 in February.

Excellent – all together, playing in a Championship side, probably not having to leave home, either.
Very best of luck to Michelle, Katie and Laila – tear up the Championship, girls!


Tim, it’s Harbert, not Habbert.
