Notts County have captured the signing of full back Shelly Provan, on a deal until the end of the Spring Series.
Shelly (nee Cox), who can also play further forward as a winger, joined Reading Women ahead of their inaugural FA WSL 2 campaign in 2014, where the Royals finished third, narrowly missing out on promotion.
The Winchester-born defender was also a part of the 2016 Reading team who, despite finishing 8th, impressed in their first season in WSL 1.
On joining the Lady Pies, Shelly said: "I am really excited to join such an experienced squad and to have the opportunity to play in the WSL 1 Spring Series. The players and staff have been so welcoming, I can't wait for the games to start."
Manager Rick Passmoor added: "We have a very experienced back line, and Shelly certainly adds a wealth of knowledge to that. Shelly gives us a different option on the left hand side, in an attacking sense as well, and she will be a great addition to the team."
Meanwhile, Fern Whelan has extended her stay at Notts County, after putting pen to paper on a new deal until the end of the Spring Series.
The central defender signed for the Lady Pies from Everton in January 2015, and has spent two seasons with the club, helping Notts to their first major final, as they reached the Women's FA Cup Final in Whelan's first season.
The England international's commanding aerial presence has seen Fern score four goals over the past two seasons, all four coming from powerful headers from the centre back.
On extending her stay with Notts, Fern said: "I'm very happy to be staying at Meadow Lane. We've got a great group of girls here and I'm delighted to commit to still being part of that team. It's been a long off season, but we're almost back now and are determined to do well in the Spring Series and show what we can do, as well as getting a run in the FA Cup."
Manager Rick Passmoor added: "Fern has been a steady rock at the back in her time with us and fits in perfectly to our experienced and knowledgeable back line. It's important to keep a strong core to the squad, in order for us to build, and Fern is very much a part of that."
Notts County's first game ahead of the WSL 1 Spring Series is next Sunday, 19th March, when they take on Yeovil Town in the Fifth Round at Eastwood Town FC (2pm).
