An extremely versatile performer, Britton was equally at home playing in defence, midfield or attack. Britton played for England in the 1995 FIFA Women's World Cup. She dropped out of the side after the finals, but scored on her return two years later as England beat Scotland 4-0. At the time she was playing for Cove Rangers in Scotland, but was looking for a move back to the English Premier League. She had previously played for Arsenal.
