Lauren Marie Bruton (born 22 November 1992) is an English football forward, who plays for FA Women's Championship side Charlton Athletic. She was born in Luton.[2]

Club career[edit]

Bruton began playing football at the age of eight years for Luton Town Ladies FC where she netted over 200 goals until the age of 15 before joining Arsenal.[2] A little over 12 months later she made her FA Women's Premier League debut for Arsenal Ladies in December 2008, playing in the 7–0 win at home to Fulham.[3]

In September 2013, Bruton left Arsenal for Reading Women, who were managed by her former Arsenal teammate Jayne Ludlow.[4]

International career[edit]

Bruton scored on her debut cap for the England Under-17s side, against Greece.[3] She was part of the England side that finished fourth at the 2008 FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup in New Zealand.[5] In July 2009 she was part of the English Under-19s squad that won the 2009 UEFA Women's Under-19 Championship in Belarus.[6]

She was called into the senior England squad for the first time by coach Phil Neville in June 2018, as a replacement for the injured Jordan Nobbs and Isobel Christiansen. She remained an unused substitute for England's 3–1 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup qualification – UEFA Group 1 win over Russia in Moscow.[7]

She made her full international debut in a 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup qualifying match against Kazakhstan on 4 September 2018.[8]
