Duo sign for Watford
 Women's Football News 22 Feb 2014
 
Duo sign for Watford - 22 Feb 2014 - Women's Football NewsWatford have added two new players to their ranks ahead of the upcoming FA Women's Super League 2 campaign. 
 
Stacie Donnelly has joined from Reading and Ashleigh James has rejoined the club after a period at Chelsea.
 
Stacie Donnelly impressed for Reading as they finished first in last year's FA Women's Premier League Southern Division. She made 27 appearances and scored six goals to help the side win the title.
 
Ashleigh James (pictured) will be a familiar face for many at the club having played with some of the girls back in the successful youth system during 2011.
 
Ashleigh says she never wanted to leave back then: "I would never have left Watford had the FA granted their Centre of Excellence license as I was really happy here. It's very good to be back and be part of a great set up."
 
Welsh under-19 international James had been out for a while with a serious injury and she's keen to get her career started again. "I was out for just over a year after rupturing my ACL, MCL and Cartilage damage," she revealed. "After a long recovery and sometimes getting frustrated at not being able to play it is a joy to be back to full training and looking forward to my first match for Watford.
 
"My goals for this season is to get back playing regular football and try and push for a place in the first team. I am also aiming to get back into international football by playing for Wales again."
 
The other new arrival, Donnelly, enjoyed her time at Reading but now can't wait to get started at Watford: "I was with Reading for nearly six years and have lots of fond memories.
 
"I felt it was good to go out on a high and to find a new challenge that Watford has now presented me, I wish Reading all the best for the future. Now I am fully committed to being a Watford player.
 
"I pride myself on my work ethic and always set myself high standards, working my hardest in both training and games as I am always looking to better myself.
 
"I have set myself a target of becoming a regular starter in the first team which I am willing to put my all into."
 
There have also been some moves in the opposite direction and Watford can confirm the departures of both Bridie Davies and Sam Batley. Davies only made a handful of appearances for the Watford Ladies FC Development Team (Reserves) in her short stay at the club, having only joined in July 2013. Davies has now left the Lady Hornets to join London Bees.
 
Batley was a rising star with the Golden Girls, progressing from the Under-17s into the Development Team (Reserves) this season and impressing the coaching staff. Batley has had to move back America due to family reason and will now be seeking a new club in the States.
