International goalkeeper Megan Walsh has joined Notts County, putting pen to paper on a two-year deal.
21-year-old Walsh progressed through the ranks at Aston Villa, before moving to Everton Ladies in 2013, initially on loan as a back up to the experienced Rachel Brown-Finnis. The 'keeper impressed Toffees manager Andy Spence during her loan and signed permanent terms with the then WSL 1 side at the end of the 2013 season.
Following relegation from Women's Super League 1 and the retirement of Brown-Finnis, the England goalkeeper established herself as the number one at the Widnes-based club for the 2014 season.
Megan has impressed, not just at her domestic club, but also on the international stage, progressing through the U17's and U19's into the U23 squad. One of the youngest members of the squad, Walsh has made three appearances for the Under 23's and told the official site she was keen to work hard and add to the caps she has already achieved: "I want to get back into those squads and continue going to the training camps to continue pushing myself and developing as a player."
Senior England goalkeeper Carly Telford currently holds the number one shirt at Meadow Lane but Megan insisted she is coming to challenge Carly's position. "I'm definitely going to challenge Carly for the number one shirt and I'll see how far I can go with it," she said. "I'm very excited for the opportunity and ready for the challenge to push myself to be the best."
