Five ex-Charlton Athletic players head the list as Fulham boost their squads with 20 new signings after extensive pre-season trials.
With the start of their new campaign this weekend, WFC Fulham have completed a hectic seven weeks of trials after an unprecedented 92 player enquiries to join the club's ranks.
After the traumatic year of keeping the club going after taking over the reins when they lost their funding from the men's club, the ladies section starts the new season in fine fettle.
The club could have done with their two new signings of prolific strikers Ann-Marie Heatherson from Charlton Athletic and Sarah Lipscombe from Reading Royals last season. This should now provide the firepower that was lacking then.
With the club having lost eight games by the odd goal in their relegation fight, their presence would have surely meant the retention of the club's National Division spot. Ann-Marie Heatherson - a former winner of the Young Player of the Year award - has already proved her return to full fitness with 16 goals in four friendly outings during pre-season.
The new intake also includes Leanne Reidy, Leah Jones, Claire Tapp and Zoe Dolton from Charlton along with Lisa Hawkins, Gemma Fraser, Jenny Banfield and Sarah Staples from Chelsea. Three more of Reading Royals' top players - Charlotte Young, Susannah Abbott and Gemma Sims - are among the newcomers.
Also on board are three very promising 16-year-olds from the Fulham youth set up amongst other quality youngsters. There are also two Premiership players in talks with the club who look likely to join the ranks of the new-look promising outfit soon.
The club also goes into the new season with a substantial list of sponsors, as well as a newly revamped club website on www.fulhamwfc.com listing all the club's top facilities. The club is also in the process of negotiating for a new third generation tigerturf pitch and set up for their reserve side.
