It is a day long awaited and long deserved as star striker Rianna Jarrett completes her move to Brighton & Hove Albion WFC. 


Brighton currently play in the top tier of English Women's football, the FA Women's Super League, and are managed by former English International manager Hope Powell.  She will be joining fellow Ireland international Megan Connolly at the Broadfield Stadium.


It goes without saying, Rianna Jarrett has been one of the most inspiring players ever to play the game of football in this country.  Rianna has of course enjoyed great team success with Wexford Youths since the inaugural 2011/12 season of the FAI Women's National League.  However, it is her incredible individual resilience that has made her the star of Irish Women's football that she is.  It has been a true privilege for Wexford Youths to boast such a player in its ranks for the past several seasons.



Rianna Jarrett made the 2018 and 2019 seasons her own, both in the domestic leagues and in the International setup.  In 2018, Jarrett announced her return to the pitch with 27 goals in a season and the WNL Player of the Season award in the bag.  In 2019, her form rose even higher with a strong return to the Irish international team.


Then came the famous night in Tallaght Stadium.  8th October 2019, live on RTÉ Television, Rianna Jarrett is given a starting spot up front in Vera Pauw's Ireland side against Ukraine.  Jarrett put in a performance that made waves throughout Women's football.  Setting up two goals and scoring one herself, Jarrett was the instrumental player in a massive 3-2 win in front of a record breaking attendance.


Youths Women captain Kylie Murphy had plenty to say to the Wexford Media Team following Jarrett's move:

"It has been a pleasure to share the pitch with her and I honestly could not be prouder of the player and most importantly the person she has become!  She is an inspiration to everyone around her.  We wish her every bit of luck and success at Brighton!"


Manager Tom Elmes also expressed how much Rianna Jarrett deserved her move to the FA WSL side, and that all at the club wish Jarrett the best of luck in the next chapter of her footballing career.


Long-time Youths Coach Scott Gaynor also heaped praise on the Wexford striker:

“I’m absolutely thrilled for Rianna. She’ll be a big loss to Wexford Youths and the league, but she deserves to be playing at a higher level and I’m delighted she’s getting the chance to do that with Brighton.

She’s not only an excellent player, but a fantastic person and role model off the pitch and I’m looking forward to seeing how she progresses over there.”
