Defender signs two-year deal
The Girondins de Bordeaux are thrilled to confirm the arrival of Paige Culver. The Canadian defender has completed her medical and signed a deal for the next two seasons (until 2023).
Born in April 1997 in Oakville (Canada), near Toronto, Paige started playing as a kid in Ontario. She later took up a place at the Canadian Football Federation's national training academy, playing for Ontario State before joining the Lady Lynx in Toronto.
In 2015 she headed south to the USA, and Ohio. Paige completed her degree at Kent State University while playing for the Kent State Golden Flashes. It was here that she really began to shine, becoming one of the pillars of the Kent State team. With 80 appearances (and 4 goals) in 3 and a half seaons, she became the team's most-used player.
After graduating in 2019 she headed to Europe to begin her professional career with Pink Sport Time, in Bari, Italy. That season in Serie A proved to be a success, with 16 appearances in all competitions.
Last season saw Paige under contract with Soyaux, where she made 7 appearances. This move to Bordeaux represents a new chapter in her career. She can also count on compatriots Vanessa Gilles and Marine Perea, loaned to Soyaux last season, to help her settle in to the Girondines squad.
The club is thrilled to have signed this talented young defender for the next two seasons, and we wish her all the best in the navy blue!
