Pengelly, Connie

From the terraces to the team and scoring the winning goal in an FA CUP Tie, against Swindon, Connie's 2 goals set up the first round tie with AEK Boco LFC on the 1st of November 2020.

Connie played 5 times for Exeter in the curtailed 2019/20 season, scoring once.

Connie, a striker, was a another product of the club’s girls’ development centre and has impressed in training with the first team with her powerful and direct play.

Speaking about the signing, player and joint-manager, Abbie Britton, said: “We are delighted that Connie has chosen to sign for us. She is a powerful and direct striker, who plays with no fear and has a real eye for goal. Her development over the last two years at the girls’ development centre has been clear to see, her work rate and desire is a real quality of hers. The quality is there to be seen, she has already trained with the first team squad and already has become a valued member of the team. I am very excited for the remainder of the season for Connie.”

Connie was one of 5 players from City who took part in the National College’s Regional Trials on the 31st of October 2020. The club wrote, 

Huge Pride from everyone at the Club to see them achieving great things.”

In November 2022 Torquay United WFC were delighted to announce and welcome "one of the most prolific strikers and goalscorers in the womens national league to the club Connie Pengelly. Connie has joined us from Exeter City FC and we all cant wait to see her in action as we aim to continue our forward progress in achieving national league promotion"

In August 2023 Exeter City Women completed a sixth signing of the Summer as young forward "Connie Pengelly rejoins the Grecians from Torquay United." Connie hit an impressive 39 goals in 45 appearances after moving up from the Girls Development Centre in 2020, including winning the National League Golden Boot in 2022. A move to the Yellows followed in November of last year, Pengelly striking a further ten goals in eleven appearances as United won promotion to the National League. City Managers Abbie Britton and Aaron Wakley are pleased to see the return of a player with such huge potential, Britton added. “We have had a very honest conversation with Connie. Her growth and maturity in embracing those chats is a credit to her. We are a different group of players to that of a year ago, with a different criteria in what we look for in a new signing, but the door was never closed for Connie and we made that clear when she left.”

Wakley, who also worked with Pengelly during her time at the Women’s Football Academy at Exeter College, emphasised the work ahead for City’s returning forward. “Connie can be whatever she wants to be, her potential is nowhere near being reached at present and we want to help her get there. However, there is a lot of hard work needed in the next few months to get Connie to where she needs to be to fight for a place in this team.”
