Charlton sign Millwall quintet

Charlton sign Millwall quintet - 11 Aug 2011 - Women's Football News

 
Charlton Athletic have strengthened their squad with five signings from Millwall Lionesses as they gear up for their return to the National Division. 
 
Technical Director Paul Mortimer has been looking to add more quality and experience to his squad since winning the Southern Division title last season and has snapped up Harley Bennett, Sinead Boyer, Ellie Stenning, Jordan Butler and Emma Beckett as well as goalkeeper Chanell Yardley from Tooting & Mitcham Utd.
 
Of the new signings, Mortimer said: "I have been impressed with all of them. We haven't just brought in girls to make up the numbers. They are good players and each and every one of them could start."
 
Ellie Stenning, along with Harley Bennett and Sinead Boyer, is returning to her former club and she enthused: "I think we have a strong squad in all positions, so I am looking at the top [of the table]. I am certainly not thinking about relegation at all - I don't want to be on the losing team again.
 
"I think that with the potential we have here we can aim for the top. Sunderland won it last year and they have some really good girls there but we have exactly the same potential here."
 
Emma Beckett has a wealth of experience in the National Division having also played for Watford and Fulham and was in demand, but is pleased she chose to join the Addicks. "A few clubs approached me," she explained, "but [coming here] was an absolute no-brainer. I think Paul [Mortimer] is excellent, I love the fact he has all the girls' respect.
 
"Even as an outsider, you can see he has their complete respect and there are not a lot of coaches who get that so I am really looking forward to playing for him.
 
"We played against Charlton a couple of times and I like the way Paul promotes youth through the set up. Towards the end of the season I started to come and watch a couple of games and was really impressed."
 
Following the great disappointment for Charlton of losing their Centre of Excellence status, particularly as most of the team that won the Southern Division last season progressed from it, many of last season's Under-16 team - who were unbeaten all season - have elected to stay with Charlton and challenge for places in the senior teams.
