Yeovil Town Ladies FC are delighted to announce that Natalie Haigh, former captain of The Lady Glovers has rejoined the club.
Haigh departed prior to the 2016 season due to work and studying commitments, as well as sustaining a back injury.
On the return of Haigh, Manager Jamie Sherwood said: "I am really happy to have brought Natalie back to the club and seeing her back in Green and White is an exciting proposition.
"Her experience, leadership and outright ability becomes an excellent addition to our squad for 2017."
On returning, Haigh said, "I am absolutely delighted to have been given the opportunity to come back. After the injury I sustained to my back almost 15 months ago, I never thought I would play again, let alone at this level.
"It's great to be back in and around the club - there is a real buzz after the success they achieved last year. Anyone that knows me knows that football is my life, and it's an unbelievable feeling to be back. I can't wait for the Spring Series to start, and to get going with the team.
"The girls here worked so hard for their success in winning WSL2 last season, and it's a real honour to now have the opportunity to train and play alongside them. This team and this league are so competitive, and I have a lot of work to do to prove that I'm good enough to not only break into the starting 11, but to compete against some of the top players in the world.
"I'm really looking forward to the challenge of learning and growing with this team, and as a collective unit being on a stage where we are competing amongst the best teams in the country.
"Leaving Yeovil was tough especially as, at the time, I couldn't see a way back from my injury. I've spent a lot of time in the gym trying to get myself into a position to be strong enough to start training properly again, and I have many people to thank for getting me to this point.
"I intend to give 110% whenever called upon to play - this club means a lot to me, and I respect the privilege of being able to wear the shirt."
Sherwood added: "This doesn't conclude our recruitment for our first season in WSL 1 as we are still hopeful of getting across the line two or three more prior to our FA Cup match with Notts County in mid-March."
Yeovil have also introduced newly appointed Sports Scientist, Ewan Greenhill as the latest addition to the coaching staff for the 2017-18 season and onwards in WSL 1.
Ewan recently joined the club from Scottish team Arbroath FC and prior to that he was Head of Sports Science & Medicine at Scottish women's side, Forfar Farmington. He has also had spells at Forfar Athletic and Brechin City FC, as well as having worked for the Scottish Football Association East Region.
Alongside his copious amount of experience within football, Greenhill also holds a BSc (Hons) in Sports Biomedicine, MSc in Sport and Exercise Science and Medicine and is working towards enhancing his skill set by gaining his Sport Science Accreditation with the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences - which is the equivalent to a UEFA Pro Licence in Coaching.
He said: "It's an exciting project to be part of at Yeovil in the FA WSL 1 and it's great to be part of something different. I've watched a lot of FA WSL and women's football in general over the last seven years and I've seen its rapid development.
"We know the size of challenge that's ahead of us and there's no doubt we have to work very hard. And that's hopefully where I come in - to support and educate the girl's to know what they need to do, whilst supporting the coaches and overall club structure for the long term development of Yeovil Town Ladies FC."
