Watford are pleased to announce the signing of attacking midfielder Dawn Mallett from London Bees.
Mallett, who can also play as a striker or in centre midfield, made 14 appearances for the Bees last season. She impressed against the Golden Girls last year, scoring twice when Watford won 5-4 at The Hive in WSL 2.
The 24-year-old can't wait to get started. "I'm really chuffed to have signed," she says. "The atmosphere is great, the girls work really hard and it's nice to be amongst a squad that are always working hard and have got that positive work ethic about them.
"There's quality throughout the team here, it's enjoyable instead of watching it and being up against it, to be part of it.
"I'm excited to try and contribute somewhere I can in the team and help them have a successful season."
Having featured in both games between the two sides at Canons Park in 2014, the new arrival will be well aware of the attacking prowess her new teammates possess.
"Watford were always a team last season that could nick points and playing against them was really difficult," Mallett reveals. "They've got strengths especially down the wide areas, it'll be nice instead of being on the end of it this time, to actually be part of that strength.
"I try and impact the game no matter where I am on the field. I like to link up plays and to play creative football in the final third so hopefully that's something I can bring next season to the club.
"Hopefully it'll be a good year ahead, I don't see why we can't be competing in that top section of the league."
While the start of the league campaign might still be a while away, it's now only 11 days until Watford return to competitive action in the FA Women's Cup against Brighton & Hove Albion. Mallett can't wait to put on the shirt for the first time: "I think the FA Cup is always exciting for any club.
"However, whether it's in the league or the cup I'm looking forward regardless to putting on the shirt, to walk out on a pitch and try and perform for Watford and for the girls.
"There's going to be some exciting times ahead here definitely."
