Watford are pleased to announce the signing of former London Bees goalkeeper Cherie Rowlands.
The 26-year-old brings plenty of experience having played almost 150 times for her previous club. She also had a spell at Arsenal where she appeared for the Gunners in WSL1 and was involved in their Champions League campaign.
"I am thrilled to be joining a club such as Watford," Rowlands reveals. "After turning down an offer last season it was one I couldn't turn down again.
"Year after year Watford have proved themselves in the WPL and last season in the WSL, not only is this down to the players but the coaches too.
"The coaching staff are more dedicated than I have witnessed anywhere else and the players play for each other no matter what.
"I have fitted in really well and have been made to feel so welcome by the players as well as the staff across all levels within the club."
The keeper will be no stranger to some having played against Watford a number of times in the past few seasons.
Being quite vocal is an attribute Rowlands believes will have a positive effect: "I'd say my strengths are probably confidence in a game and being quite commanding and vocal.
"I want my team to have complete trust in me so for them to do that I have to be able to talk to them before, during and after games and training."
Last season saw the club finish in seventh place, although the Lady Hornets were as high as third before injuries had a big impact. Rowlands reckons that the club can be competing at the top end again: "I think the aim is to keep getting better and proving that we can compete at the top of the table.
"The team work really hard and it's showing already. The desire and determination is both there and it's only going to get better.
"On a personal level my aim is to enjoy football again and to keep on working hard and improving day by day. I want to help Watford be the best they can be and I will put my all in to achieving that."
