Guernsey footballer Maya Le Tissier signs first professional contract

Guernsey footballer Maya Le Tissier has signed her first professional contract with women's top-flight side Brighton & Hove Albion.

The 17-year-old has agreed a two-and-a-half year deal with the FA WSL club after progressing from their academy set-up.

She has already appeared for the first team 13 times this season, having made her senior debut last December, aged just 16.

In November the England U17 captain helped her side to a clean sheet and scored in a shoot-out as Brighton beat heavyweights Arsenal in the league cup.
