Yeovil secure Heatherson signing
 Women's Football News 16 Dec 2014
Yeovil secure Heatherson signing - 16 Dec 2014 - Women's Football NewsYeovil Town manager Jamie Sherwood has already boosted to his squad ahead of the new 2015 WSL season, with the confirmed arrival of Ann Marie Heatherson. 
Annie, a former Bristol Academy player, has committed to the Lady Glovers for the 2015 campaign, in a new season which will see the top two teams in WSL2 in with the opportunity of gaining promotion to WSL1.
The Hackney-born 30-year-old striker has already had a successful career so far, playing at Charlton Athletic and being named FA Young Player of the Year whilst also winning the League Cup. She was an FA Women's Cup winner after back to back appearances in the final and Heatherson has also experienced football in Iceland for Stjarnan along with American W League club Buffalo Flash. In October 2010, Heatherson signed for Bristol Academy, after a spell at both Millwall and Chelsea with her 20 goals in 20 games helping the Lionesses to promotion.
Heatherson has also been involved in the international England Under-21 squad and Sherwood is certain she will bring a wealth of experience to Yeovil, ahead of a season where the club are looking to continue with its progression, after being named as WSL2 Club of the Year.
Sherwood was delighted with the news of Heatherson committing to the club and said: "Annie embodies everything that I want to see in my players. She always plays with her heart on her sleeve and she demonstrates a willingness to work hard and sacrifice herself for the team. In addition to this she brings the experience that has been lost in the retirements of both Rachael Edwards and Katie Sherwood which is crucial in the WSL.
"This signing more importantly brings that potential for goals and again after last season this is an area we wanted to improve on. Annie has a hunger and desire to remind people of the qualities that she can bring to a team and I am extremely pleased that Annie sees the potential of the club and has chosen to play as a Lady Glover for 2015."
Heatherson was also delighted to be joining the club and said: "It has been a tough year retiring from football after leaving Bristol Academy WFC and the last few months I've missed the beautiful game a lot and I have to thank a lot of clubs that have shown an interest in me but having Jamie and Yeovil contact me and having a lot of conversations about mine and the clubs future in the WSL I'm excited to be joining. I've known Jamie for a while and knowing and understanding his passion to want to achieve the best and play at the highest level of WSL is something we have in common.
"It's an absolute pleasure to be a part of a club that has a family atmosphere and takes care of their fans and players but the most important thing is understanding me as a player and what I can bring to the team. I'm excited and raring to start the 2015 campaign!"
The Women's Super League begins in March, but before the league campaign kicks off, the Lady Glovers are involved in the Third Round of the FA Women's Cup with a tie to be played on Sunday 1st February.
