Fran Kirby joins Chelsea - 9 Jul 2015 - Women's Football NewsChelsea Ladies FC is delighted to announce the signing of England international Fran Kirby from Reading FC Women. 
 
The striker scored England's first goal of the Women's World Cup in the 2-1 win over Mexico as the Lionesses went on to finish third overall.
 
Kirby said: "Chelsea is one of the best clubs in the world and now is a really good time for me to step up in my career.
 
"Myself and my family feel very privileged to be a part of the club. It's pretty incredible for me, the last couple of months have been a bit of a whirlwind and moving here is the cherry on top."
 
The 22-year-old joins from Reading where she scored 29 goals for the Women's Super League 2 side last term and a further 11 in just five appearances this season, prior to the World Cup.
 
Kirby's performances for Reading in the 2014 season saw her named the inaugural WSL 2 Players' Player of the Year. The move has been described by her former club as being for a British record transfer fee.
 
The England international has signed a three-and-a-half-year contract with the Blues and goes straight into manager Emma Hayes's squad for this weekend's FA WSL 1 match with Bristol Academy at Wheatsheaf Park, Staines.
 
Hayes, whose side sit top of the table and unbeaten as the league returns from its mid-season break, said: "We're delighted we've been able to get Fran on board, she is a very exciting young talent and I think she can go on to become a Chelsea great. Our aim is to win trophies here and Fran can play a major part in that for years to come."
