Following successful trials in late June, Huddersfield Town are preparing for the new FA Women's Premier League season with a number of new faces having signed for the club.
First team manager Ash Vickers has built his 2016-17 squad on a mixture of last season's experienced players (Laura Carter, Vicky Abbott, Beth Jennings, Sarah Dobby, Abbie Mullen, Debs Hastings, Katie Nutter, Rachael Ackroyd and captain Kate Mallin) and added players who are young, athletic and hungry for success.
Vickers said: "We only want to recruit players who want to play for us for the right reasons and who have the enthusiasm to work hard for their rewards."
Lauren Santoro joins from Sheffield FC where she was last season's Development team supporters' Player of the Year. Lauren comes as a very talented goalkeeper, who will no doubt be pushing hard with current keeper Laura Carter for the number one spot at the start of the season.
Amy Battel joins as a tough tackling defender who was previously at FC United of Manchester. Amy has made two friendly appearances already and shown just what she is all about, whilst another defender, Georgia Hewitt, comes with bags of ability and plenty of pace. Her previous clubs include Aston Villa and Derby County.
Town have also captured talented midfielder Charley Evans, who was instrumental in the County Cup Final for Barnsley against them last season and they were excited to hear about the possibility of bringing her to the club. Charley is a dynamic midfielder whose work rate is second to none. She is another big character who has settled straight into the team and is looking forward to getting started.
16-year-old Katie Halligan is a young talented midfielder who joins from Manchester City Academy, Katie has settled in well with the squad. Danielle Biglin has signed from neighbours Wakefield Ladies, a player that manager Ash Vickers tried to sign when he took over last season but didn't manage to prise her away. She will bring lots of ability and pace to the squad for next season.
The latest recruit is the capture of highly talented defender Millie Turner (pictured). Millie joins from Doncaster Belles, having also played for Chelsea Ladies before moving up north for her further education. She joined up with the squad last week and has hit the ground running and the club is looking forward to seeing her impress in the Town colours.
The new league season kicks off on Sunday 21st August, with a home game at the Stafflex Arena versus Nuneaton Town, 2.30pm kick off. In the meantime the team continue with pre season friendlies with FAWPL Northern Division One side Chorley Ladies among their upcoming opponents.
The club will run three open age teams again this season, with the development team playing in the FAWPL Reserve Division and the Academy team playing in the Sheffield & Hallamshire Women's League. The club will also add a fourth junior team with trials and training continuing for a new under 11's girls team. Their season with the other junior teams at under 18's, under 15's and under 13's will commence in early September.
Individual player sponsorships are available for the new season and any interested parties should contact the club Chairman David Mallin at firstname.lastname@example.org, for further details.
