Born: 03 November 2001 (Dorset, England)
Asmita Ale joined us in August, 2021, from Aston Villa.
Asmita progressed through the youth ranks of Villa’s academy to become a key member of their first team. The versatile defender was rewarded with her first professional contract after turning 18 and was part of the Villa side that gained promotion to the Barclays FA Women’s Super League in 2019/20.
She adapted quickly to life in the top flight of women’s football, making 18 appearances in Villa's debut campaign in the WSL and helping them to record three clean sheets in their final five games of the 2020/21 season. She also recorded the highest number of interceptions of any player in the league and ended the campaign on a high after being named Players' Player of the Season.
On the international stage, she has progressed through the England youth teams and was a key part of the England Under-19s squad that attended the European Championship Finals in Scotland in 2019.
