Charlton Athletic Women's team's newest signing is buzzing with anticipation.
Humphrey expressed her delight at joining the club in her first interview with Charlton: "I’m really excited and really pleased to be here – I’ve met all the girls, and it’s a great group and a talented group."
Humphrey's football journey began at Arsenal's academy when she was just nine-years-old. Later, a valuable loan spell at Doncaster Rovers Belles allowed her to grow as a player and adapt to life away from home.
The midfielder then made a significant move to Bristol City, spending four fruitful years in the south west, making 76 appearances in the FA Women's Championship. She later joined Liverpool and played a pivotal role in their promotion to the Women's Super League.
Now, she embarks on a new challenge with Charlton Athletic, and it's clear her attraction to the club was influenced by her conversations with manager Karen Hills and her backroom staff.
She said: “They’re people that can help me develop my game to another level. Hopefully, I can come in and add competition for places. As I said, it’s a talented group and I feel like they’re the types of players I want to be playing with and, hopefully, we can work together and succeed this season."
On her personal playing style, Humphrey added: "I’d like to say that I’m creative. I like to link up with my teammates, create opportunities and assists – that’s what I hope to bring to the team."
