Yeovil Town manager Jamie Sherwood has strengthened his squad by securing the signings of Sammy Quayle and Emily Donovan.
Quayle, who is a Welsh Under-19 International, has recently joined Yeovil and is another promising youngster to join the Lady Glovers having previously played at Coventry City Ladies.
Sherwood was pleased to announce the signing and said: "Sammy can play either as a wide player, or as a full back and gives us great versatility. She is young and hard working but shows real maturity. I am excited by the potential she will be able to bring."
Quayle added: "I am excited to be signing for Yeovil and extremely grateful to Jamie for giving me the opportunity to play at a higher level.
"It's a great club with a great group of girls and I can't wait to see what the rest of the season brings."
Dorset-based 18-year-old Emily Donovan has signed first team forms, just days before the team head to Huish Park to face Millwall Lionesses.
Donovan has impressed manager Jamie Sherwood with the application she has shown and her progression, drive and determination in the Development team squad where she was a regular player, making 19 appearances and scoring 3 goals. With Huish Park ready and waiting for its first female match for over two years, Yeovil have shown the club's progression of players within its own ranks by offering the just rewards for the hard work put in by the individual.
Donovan grew up in Dorset, making her way through the Dorset FA Centre of Excellence, before heading across the border to Somerset Centre of Excellence when the Dorset centre changed to a performance centre. After her final year as an Under-16 player with Somerset Centre of Excellence, Donovan moved and re-located her studies to play for Reading FC Women, before moving back home and joining Yeovil Town Ladies, where she has been a development team player ever since.
Sherwood said: "I am really excited by the signing of Emily Donovan as she has come through the development squad and is an energetic midfielder with a great work ethic and has a good eye for goal and superb understanding of her time and space.
"I am confident that Emily will be one of a number of development team players who could make the step up to first team level and she has shown just what it takes."
Donovan added: "Yeovil Town Ladies as a club are going places, and I feel privileged to be involved in the journey. This is the perfect opportunity to allow me to continue my development, and I am grateful to all associated with the club for making me feel welcome and helping me to progress as a player and a person."
