Early life[edit]

She began playing football at a young age and spent time in both the Portsmouth and Southampton youth set-ups before moving to the Chelsea centre of excellence at the age of nine.

The loan-deal was subsequently extended through the 2017 Spring Series.[2][5]


In July 2017, Brett transferred to Everton on a two-year deal.[6][7]

Brighton & Hove Albion[edit]
