Yeovil Town have the pleasure of announcing the double signing of forward Katie Cook from Forest Green Rovers and central midfielder Chelsea Spencer from Toronto Lady Lynx in Canada.
Both are proven performers and will add much to the Glovers squad as they look to kick on in the second half of the season.
Katie Cook has been a long term target of the club, and almost joined the ranks last summer. She is an exciting young player with an excellent eye for goal. She has excellent pace, shows great distribution and is highly dangerous in the six yard area. She has a proven goalscoring record and will add much potency to the Yeovil front line.
"We tried to sign Katie last summer," joint manager Sarah Lawler said. "In the end she decided to stay at Rovers, but she is here now and we are all very excited about what she will bring to our forward line.
"She played against us in the Combination last season and kept our defence busy throughout the match, and scored a great goal. She has amazing pace and holds on to the ball well. What you get with Katie though is a player who scores lots of goals, and consistently. She joins a good collection of forwards at the club, and we hope the extra competition will add to the goals scored by the team. This will add to our selection problem up front, but it is problem that Nigel (Williams) and I are very happy to have."
Chelsea Spencer joins after a successful trial with the club, and she does so having played at a high level in both Canada and the United States. She is an attacking and creative midfielder who can also operate up front. She started her career with Team Ontario in Canada where she won a league medal in 2004. She went on to compete in the Club National Championship for Burlington (silver medallist), and after further experience she moved to the United States where she played for both Niagara University and Louisville University, who were ranked 25th in the nation at the time.
Chelsea came to Britain in the summer and had a trial with Premier League Colchester United. In the end, work commitments took her to the Bournemouth area and she has instead come to Yeovil Town Ladies.
"Any player who has featured well for top level teams in the United States and Canada has a certain quality about them," Lawler said. "With this in mind we see Chelsea as an excellent signing. She has done brilliantly on trial, showing plenty of talent. She passes the ball well, shows good awareness and likes to get forward, where she shows goal scoring potential. She has enjoyed a good assist rating throughout her career, and like Katie she has fitted in well with the rest of the squad.
"Both players have great potential for the club and Nigel and myself are pleased that they will add quality to what is already an impressive squad this season."
Chelsea Spencer has received FIFA international clearance and both are available for selection this Sunday against Queen's Park Rangers at Wells City FC this weekend.
