London Bees are delighted to announce the signings of three new players to their first team squad ahead of the resumption of the Women's Super League season.
Joining the Bees are two strikers in Emma Whitter and Kate Bowers as well as defender Kara-May Howes - all of whom will be available for Sunday's game against Oxford United Women at The Hive.
Emma Whitter - who becomes the oldest member of the Bees' squad at thirty-years-old - has enjoyed spells with Chelsea, Millwall and Crystal Palace in the past. Now, having completed her comeback from a serious ankle injury, she says that she is determined to lead from the front for her new side:
"It feels amazing," she said. "I haven't played for a year due to injury and I have really enjoyed it during the six or seven weeks that I have been here.
"I'm used to being one of the more experienced heads as I had a similar situation at my previous clubs. I'm a striker and I score goals - I am very confident and I want to help the team progress and win more games."
Joining her in attack will be 24-year-old forward Kate Bowers, who has been training with the Bees following a recent anterior cruciate ligament injury. Now fit and raring to go, the former Chesham United striker says that excitement is high ahead of making her bow for the Bees: "It is really exciting to have been given the opportunity. I can't actually explain how excited I am - I have been out for a while so I'm ready to get back out on the pitch.
"We are on a high and everybody is buzzing and ready to go. We are going to get those points - we have to!"
The final new addition to the Bees' squad is 18-year-old full-back Kara-May Howes, who began her career at Oxford United before impressing at MK Dons and being brought to the attention of Julian Broomes.
Now having been given the chance to get her first taste of Women's Super League football, the defender says that she is thrilled to be at The Hive and that her first impressions of the club could not have been better:
"It is amazing. This is a new opportunity for me and I am thrilled to be here. I'm so excited to get going - I can't wait.
"The sessions have been really good and really enjoyable. They are all nice girls who talk to you a lot and I feel that I am already getting to know everybody here."
London Bees have also announced that two of their bright young stars in Andria Georgiou and Katherine Huggins have signed their first senior contracts.
Georgiou and Huggins, both of whom are aged nineteen-years-old, have broken into the first team this season after impressing with the Development Squad who finished in fifth place in the Southern Division last season.
Commenting on her new deal, central midfielder Andria said that she is pleased of have signed on the dotted line ahead of the resumption of the Women's Super League season:
"It feels great to have signed my new contract and go into this second half of the season fully feeling like a part of the team.
"I have worked my way into the first team squad during the season and it was a fantastic feeling to help us get that first win on the board against Millwall, so now going into the second half of the season it will definitely help to give me even more motivation to play even better and help the team achieve more wins."
Meanwhile, left-sided full-back Kat says that it feels good to have all of her hard work rewarded and that she was now looking forward to the second half of the season as the Bees look to pick up where they left off against Oxford United Women at The Hive on Sunday:
"It feels really good. I have worked really hard for it, working my way up from the Development Team during the last couple of seasons.
"Having had a taste of being in the first team this season it is a great feeling to earn the new contract. I feel comfortable in the squad, I get on well with all of the girls and I am really excited about the future.
"We are full of confidence going into the second half of the season."
