The reshaping of Everton's squad has begun with the news that midfielders Amy Kane and Brooke Chaplen have departed the club at the conclusion of their contracts.
However there is better news in that winger Danielle Turner has committed her future to the Club by signing a new contract.
Following the completion of her studies, Kane has taken the decision to focus on her work career, while Chaplen spent four years with the Blues after signing from Chelsea ahead of the 2009-10 campaign.
Boss Andy Spence has offered his thanks to the pair and wished them luck in their future careers. "When we sat down and discussed where Amy wanted to go and where we wanted to go as a club it was a very easy conversation," he said.
"Amy is looking at her career; she has just come out of university and done really well in terms of her education so she wants to make sure she forges a really good career for herself and I'm fully supportive of that.
"I can only thank Amy for all the years of dedication to Everton. I've said to her, in my eyes, we will always see her as an Everton player and it'll be nice to think possibly somewhere down the line we can see her within the club using her qualifications that she has acquired to maybe help with one of the club's programmes.
"Obviously everyone at the club wishes Brooke the very best in terms of her next move. She is certainly someone who given Everton a lot and has always shown a good levels of ability and certainly contributed last season and worked hard to help the team.
"It's always a difficult one when someone has been at the club for a number of years but we very much wish her the very best. I'm sure she'll find herself playing back in WSL football at some level very soon.
"Everyone at the club - players, former players, all the staff and I'm sure the fans - will join me in wishing Amy and Brooke the very best for the future."
Centre of Excellence graduate Danielle Turner missed the entire 2013 campaign through injury but proved her value with 21 appearances in all competitions in 2014.
Having agreed terms on a two-year deal, Turner has set her sights on returning the Blues to WSL 1 at the first time of asking.
"I'm delighted to have signed a new two-year contract," she said. "I think last year I was just finding my feet in the league but this year I really want to put myself out there as a key player and help Everton win back promotion to WSL 1.
"It's where the club belongs and I think with the new announcement that two teams will be promoted I think that gives us an extra boost and I think we definitely should be one of those two teams looking to get straight back up."
Having overcome her injury problems, Turner wants to build on the experience she gained in WSL 2 - and try to add goals to her game.
"I think my aim has to be keeping the consistency in my game," she added. "I thought I did well last year; I was pleased with my first year in the WSL. I want to keep that consistency this year.
"I want to keep growing and become one of those key players in a more of a leading role. Maybe I will get on the scoresheet a little more as well instead of hitting the post."
