Yeovil Town Ladies FC are delighted to announce the signing of Corinne Yorston.
Manager Jamie Sherwood labelled it as the biggest signing the club has ever made and believes that Yorston will be a valuable player for the Lady Glovers as they go in search for promotion in the 2015 Womens Super League season.
Yorston, who played for WSL1 side Bristol Academy last season, making 19 appearances and scoring 2 goals, will bring a wealth of experience and expertise to the already strong assembled squad.
Sherwood, whose side begin pre-season training this week said: "Corinne is an excellent addition to our squad and this illustrates the ambition we have for this coming season.
"To have a player with such a winning mentality, attention to detail and experience will be invaluable to us both on and off the pitch.
"We truly believe that everyone within the club can benefit from this signing. She is a role model to our younger players within our youth, intermediate and development teams. In addition, her know how and her approach will help the senior team dressing room immensely.
"Yorston will go straight into our first team squad that are preparing to play in the third round of The FA Women's Cup, a competition she knows well and a competition we have set targets for and aim to achieve in."
Corinne is an FA Womens Cup winner and has also played in Champions League matches, along with making appearances for England at various levels.
On signing for Yeovil this season, Corinne commented: "I am thrilled and very excited to be joining Yeovil Town Ladies FC, and can't wait to start the upcoming FA WSL season as a Yeovil Town player.
"Whilst I am very sad to be leaving Bristol Academy WFC, and it was a very difficult decision to leave a club I have been at for eight seasons and where I have so many good memories and have made so many good friends, I'm really looking forward to the new challenge that Yeovil Town brings to me.
"It was very important to me that Yeovil Town showed the right standards and matched the expectations I have from playing in the FAWSL 1 and from the other FAWSL 1 offers I received, and I have been very impressed with the ambition and drive to succeed shown by the club.
"I am determined to do everything I can to help them achieve all that they want to, and all that they have the capabilities to do. They have a very good squad and a good set up throughout the club, and now I just can't wait to get training, get involved with the team, and get the season started."
Manager Jamie Sherwood will now begin the teams preparation for their first competitive game against FA Women's Premier League side Lewes Ladies in the third round of the FA Womens Cup, before the FA Women's Super League action kicks off in March, with fixtures to be released at the end of January.
