Reading FC Women have signed England internationals Jo Potter and Jade Moore, plus 23-year old striker Kirsty Linnett.
Kelly Chambers has added defender Potter, midfielder Moore and striker Linnett to her squad, the trio previously played for Notts County Ladies.
Moore (26) and Potter (32) have amassed over 50 England caps between them, and have both been selected for Mark Sampson's squad to travel to Holland this summer for the European Championships. Kirsty Linnett (23), began her career in the WSL aged 19, and has represented England at U17, U20 and U23s levels. The three had previously played together with Royals midfielder Remi Allen at Birmingham City.
Kelly Chambers believes the trio's experience will greatly benefit her side, saying: "They were three players that were on our radar before the Spring Series, we wanted to bring in more experience from WSL1, and that's what we've done. It broadens the options we have and it's great to bring in three players of that calibre, and have that experience at playing at WSL1, they're definitely going to enhance us.
"They're coming into a good squad already, so it's a case of building now and making sure we are even more competitive in the league."
All three players were included in the Reading squad for their FA WSL 1 Spring Series match against Chelsea on Wednesday night, and each of the trio came on as second half substitutes.
Three more former Notts County players have also joined up with new clubs this week. Another England international, Carly Telford, has rejoined Chelsea and made her debut in the same match against Reading FC Women.
Fellow goalkeeper Megan Walsh meanwhile has moved to Yeovil Town in place of the injured Charlotte Haynes and she also made her first appearance on Wednesday night, in their local derby against Bristol City, whilst Louise Quinn made her debut for Arsenal in their 4-4 draw against Liverpool.
