With only six days until the Lady Glovers play their FA Womens Cup Third Round match against Lewes and just under two months until the start of the FA Women's Super League season, the Yeovil Town squad has been strengthened even more with the welcoming of three further signings.
Wales Under-19 international Alys Hinchcliffe, ex Cardiff City player Stephanie Williams and former England Colleges player and ex-Cardiff and Bristol Academy player Ellie Isaac have all signed WSL forms for the coming season.
Alys Hinchcliffe said: "Joining Yeovil is an exciting opportunity for me. The club and the team are extremely professional and I cant wait to begin working with them towards the high goals that we have in our sights. Its a very exciting time to be a part of this football club."
With pre-season in full swing, manager Jamie Sherwood commented with: "I am pleased to have secured the signing of Steph Williams, a very composed holding midfielder who is comfortable playing 5 and 10 yard passes or playing that big switch pass. Also we have added further competition in defence with the signing of Ellie Isaac who has WSL experience with Bristol Academy but also spent a season with myself at Cardiff City LFC in the English Premier League before the North South divide. We have recently added Welsh U19 player Alys Hinchliffe who is a very athletic and dynamic player who adds great versatility as she can play in any position on the right.
"These signings add good competition for places and all come in with the desire to be playing week in week out, which can only breed the competitive edge and will make us even more competitive than we were last season!"
Midfielder Stephanie Williams, who joins from Cardiff, said: "I am overjoyed and excited to join Yeovil for the fast approaching season. I cant thank the players and staff enough for being so welcoming to me after coming in as a new face."
Assistant Manager Michelle Yeowell, who has also been on hand with preparations for the Lady Glovers first game this Sunday has been thrilled with the squads effort and commented on the three new additions saying: "All three players have been training hard this week with the squad and all bring additional strengths and quality into an already talented squad. They are all very eager to get started with the season and work hard to make this season successful."
Ellie Isaac was equally eager for the season to start and can't wait to get going: "I'm really excited for the opportunity with Yeovil. The girls are a great bunch with a lot of talent and I love the ambition of the club, especially being named WSL2 club of the year. We've been working hard in training and I can't wait for the season to start."
