‘She’s not from London, she’s from Milton Keynes!’ | Interview | News

Even though they’ve spent the last three years apart, Lotte Wubben-Moy and Leah Williamson are just as close as they’ve always been.

Our defensive duo were separated by 4,000 miles when Wubben-Moy left us for the University of North Carolina in 2017 but have remained in contact ever since.

“We did speak lots while we were apart,” our new signing told Arsenal Digital. “Going back to my debut at Arsenal, I remember her pulling me aside just before the game and telling me to enjoy it, that you don’t get to make your debut every day.

“Is it going to be a debut when I play my first game after coming back from the States? I don’t know if you’d call it that, but definitely since that moment Leah’s been a good friend of mine. I get on at her a bit because she thinks she’s a London girl but I’m like, ‘Leah, come on, you live in Milton Keynes!’

“We have a good bit of banter about that. Leah and I are close friends, she’s a young player like me but has obviously got an amazing amount of experience under her belt. I look forward to playing alongside her. She’s a great girl.”
