Defender Grace Fisk made the move to West Ham United from the University of South Carolina in the Winter 2020 transfer window.
Born in Bromley, England, Fisk moved to the United States of America and was a student with Penn State University, playing for them in 2016 season.
Fisk moved to the University of South Carolina in 2017 and immediately established herself in the heart of the South Carolina Gamecock defence.
The 2018 campaign wielded numerous awards and accolades for the young English defender. The season started with Fisk representing her country at the U20s Women’s World Cup, where the Lionesses claimed a bronze medal.
Fisk’s outstanding season continued with the defender being named the SEC Defensive Player of the Year. She was also included in the All-SEC First Team, the United Soccer Coaches All-America Second Team and on the MAC Hermann Trophy Watch list.
The youngster was named Gamecock captain for the 2019 season and helped the side to claim the SEC Tournament Title, the fifth overall in the side’s history, while also being named the Most Valuable Player. Fisk’s leadership and defensive attributes helped the side to go the entire competition without conceding a single goal.
Fisk ended her final campaign with the South Carolina University as the United Soccer Coaches Scholar Player of the Year – the first student-athlete in the University’s history to receive the honour.
The defender would play in every match across the rest of the curtailed 2019/20 campaign after she joined the Irons, making her debut in a Barclays FA Women's Super League match away to Tottenham Hotspur.
Fisk played every minute of West Ham United's 2020/21 WSL campaign - playing a crucial part as the team avoided relegation.
