Angela Addison (born 9 December 1999) is an English professional footballer who plays as a forward for Tottenham Hotspur in the FA Women's Super League (FA WSL).

Club career[edit]

C&K Basildon[edit]

Addison debuted for C&K Basildon's senior team in their 2016–17 FA Women's Premier League season, making 16 appearances and scoring 11 goals.[1] In the 2017–18 FA WPL season, Addison's final season with C&K Basildon, she made 26 appearances and scored 23 goals across all competitions.[2] After the season concluded Addison joined former WPL opponents Tottenham Hotspur, moving up to the FA Women's Championship and playing semi-professional football for the first time.[3]

Tottenham Hotspur[edit]

Addison signed with Tottenham Hotspur in July 2018, in the leadup to the club's second season in the second division.[4][3] She made her first appearance for the club on 19 September 2018 in a match away to Leicester City as a substitute for fellow midfielder Sarah Wiltshire.[5] Later in the season during Spurs' home fixture against Leicester City, she once again was used as a substitute and this time scored the game-winning goal during stoppage time.[6][7] This feat and her previous performances that month saw her nominated for FA Women's Championship Player of the Month award for February.[8] She scored six goals in 19 matches during the 2018–19 FA Women's Championship season and helped Spurs secure promotion to the FA Women's Super League for the first time.[9]

In July 2019 it was announced that Addison was among the players Tottenham retained from their Championship squad for their debut WSL season. This was her first professional football contract.[10] Addison scored her first professional hat-trick vs Lewes in the FA Women's League Cup on the 11th of December 2019. The hat-trick was completed in four minutes and helped Tottenham to a 6–0 victory.[11]

On 26 February 2021 Addison signed a new contract with Spurs through the end of the 2022 with an option to extend for another year.[12] Addison scored her second professional hat-trick in Spurs' 11–0 win over Watford in the League Cup on 17 November 2021.[13]

International career[edit]

Addison received her first call up for the England women's national under-21 football team in February 2020.[14] She subsequently had her first cap in a friendly against France's under-20 team on 8 March 2020.[15] In October 2021 Addison received her first call up to the England women's national under-23 football team, but she along with her Spurs teammates were recalled from the camp.[16] The following month Addison made her first appearance at an England under-23 camp.[17]

Personal life[edit]

Angela has a twin sister, Therese, who also plays football. The twins both spent time playing together at C&K Basildon and Tottenham Hotspur.[18][8] Angela goes by the nickname "A" stemming from the years that herself and Therese, known as "T", played at the same clubs and shared the pitch together.[19][20]
