Youngsters boost Everton squad
 Women's Football News 6 Feb 2014
 
Everton manager Andy Spence has boosted his squad with the capture of two promising youngsters. 
 
Goalkeeper Megan Walsh, who will be known to Blues fans following her short spell on loan last season, has now joined on a permanent deal from Aston Villa. The England Under-23 international made an impressive debut against Birmingham City last season and will now join up with the squad and look to provide competition for Rachel Brown-Finnis for the No 1 shirt.
 
Joining Walsh in signing for the Blues is 17-year-old Gabby George, who makes the switch from Manchester United's Centre of Excellence. George has just made the transition into the England Under-19s squad and Everton have beaten off a number of top clubs to land the promising youngster.
 
Manager Andy Spence was delighted to be able to secure both Bright and George and believes both will prove astute acquisitions. "Both Megan and Gabby fit the profile of the type of person and player we want at Everton," he said.
 
"Megan has obviously tasted WSL football last season when she joined us on loan and her debut away to Birmingham was simply outstanding. To now have her on board really does provide us with two goalkeepers who are of top quality and who will push each other on.
 
"Gabby is the youngest member of the squad and because of that she will be developed accordingly to allow her to understand the demands of senior football. She is someone who has significant potential and we will be mindful of ensuring we give her the right exposure to the first team environment, but also the development squad environment as well, as both will be crucial to her development."
 
Spence has also handed a first senior contract to England Under-19 international Millie Turner. The former Manchester United Centre of Excellence player joined the club last June, featuring extensively with the Development Squad, but will now link up the first team ahead of the new season.
 
"Millie is a player who has fantastic technical skills," added the Blues boss. "We have been developing her physical and tactical side of her game through training with the first team and getting lots of match practice within our Development Squad. She will continue to be allowed time to grow and develop over the coming years but we know we have a player who is making good progress and will continue to develop her undoubted potential."
 
The trio will hope to play some part in Everton's upcoming friendly against Glasgow City on 16th February.
