At just 20 years old, Chelsea academy product Aggie Beever-Jones has made a name for herself following her breakthrough season with the Chelsea first team.

Her hard work throughout the season culminated in a well-deserved first senior call-up to Sarina Wiegman’s England squad.

During a remarkable season, Beever-Jones not only became a Women’s Super League champion with her childhood club, Chelsea FC, but also demonstrated her versatility and skill, earning the trust of both Chelsea manager Emma Hayes and Lionesses manager Sarina Wiegman.

Beever-Jones joined the Chelsea academy at a young age after successful trials. She signed her first professional contract with Chelsea at 18 and subsequently gained valuable experience through two season-long loan spells at Bristol City and Everton. These experiences further developed and prepared her for the 23/24 season with the Chelsea first team.

Beever-Jones’ involvement in the 23-24 season for club

The 23/24 season was a turbulent and transitional period for Chelsea, marked by injuries, expiring contracts, and the shocking early-season announcement that Emma Hayes would be leaving the club at the end of the season after 12 years.

These challenges required players to step up, and Aggie Beever-Jones certainly rose to the occasion.

At just 20 years old, Beever-Jones showcased her talent in the 17 games she played throughout the season.

Her first Women’s Super League goal of the 23-24 season came during Chelsea’s game at Kingsmeadow against Brighton.

Coming off the bench, she scored Chelsea’s fourth and final goal in the 82nd minute.

This goal marked the beginning of a brilliant goal-scoring streak, with Beever-Jones finding the net in each of Chelsea’s next five games against Aston Villa, Everton, Liverpool, and Leicester City.

The forward’s impressive performances throughout the season resulted in her finishing as the league’s joint fifth top scorer, with 11 goals and two assists in 17 games.

Contributions for the England Under 23s 

Before her recent call-up to the senior squad, Aggie Beever-Jones was a regular feature in England’s U23s, consistently scoring for England in the youth setups.

Earlier this year, she received a call-up to the U23s, playing 45 minutes against Spain’s youth team and scoring in that match. She also featured in their game against the Netherlands.

During the February international break, with the senior Lionesses set to play against Austria, it was announced just an hour before the teams were revealed that Beever-Jones would be joining the senior team for the first time.

Although she did not feature in the game, being named as a substitute would have provided valuable learning experience and excellent preparation for her breakthrough into the senior squad.

The U23s played their final game of the 23-24 season in April, securing a 3-1 victory against Sweden. Beever-Jones contributed by assisting England’s second goal of the night, scored by Kiera Skeels.

What we can expect for the young Lioness now in the senior squad

As Beever-Jones breaks into the senior squad, Lionesses fans can look forward to watching a player who exhibits constant effort and commitment on the field.

With Rachel Daly retiring from international duties earlier this year, Beever-Jones is a valuable addition to the senior side, capable of creating chances and scoring goals.

One of Beever-Jones’ standout qualities is her versatility, allowing her to play comfortably in any position along the front line.

This flexibility is likely to present selection challenges for Sarina Wiegman due to the number of talented forwards in the squad.

Whether she is given the chance to prove herself in this international break or not, one thing is certain: England fans have much to be excited about. Beever-Jones is poised to make a good impression when given the opportunity.
