Addicks swoop for Spurs skipper
 Women's Football News 11 Jul 2013
Charlton Athletic manager Stuart Weston has made his first summer signing with the capture of Tottenham Hotspur captain Sam Pittuck. 
Sam Pittuck is looking forward to a profitable season in front of goal and linking up with former strike partner Gemma Shepherd after re-signing for the Charlton women's team.

Pittuck returns to the Addicks from Tottenham Hotspur, whom she captained for the last three years and led into the Premier League and to the London Cup title whilst there.

After leaving Charlton in 2005, Pittuck joined West Ham United, going on to become their all-time leading goalscorer, netting 37 goals in 77 games. Despite that record, she was played in defence at Spurs, so she says her aims for the season are "to find some goals from somewhere."

She added: "I've been playing centre half for two years so I'm not sure what a forward is meant to do at the moment.

"But hopefully pre-season will sort that out and by the time the first game comes around, hopefully I can crack some goals in with Sheps.

"It will be nice to play further forward and doing my natural sort of game. Centre half is a really frustrating position for me."

Having played in the Premier League Southern Division for the previous two years, Pittuck knows what the league is all about. After struggling to sixth and eighth place finishes with Tottenham, she is looking forward to challenging at the top of the table with her new club, admitting the time was right to make the move.

She said: "I thought I had taken Spurs as far as I could go and I needed to change myself and Sheps had been on at me for a good two or three months after the season had finished.

"[The division] gets harder every year; the pace seems to quicken and there are youngsters coming through that are so much quicker so you've got to try and keep yourself ahead of the game.

"It is a decent standard and hopefully we can push on and target the top spot. That would be the aim - in the twilight of our careers it would be good to go out with a bang."
