Sheffield United are delighted to announce the signing of defender Sophie Bradley-Auckland.
The 31-year-old joins the club after a spell at Liverpool, returning to the game after taking a year out during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The former England international represented her country at the 2011 World Cup and was selected for the Team GB squad at the London 2012 Olympics.
One of the most experienced defenders in the game, Bradley-Auckland has previously represented Leeds United and was part of the Lincoln City side at the start of the FA Women's Super League era.
The centre back was capped 28 times for her country and enjoyed success in the second tier more recently when she was part of Neil Redfearn's title-winning Doncaster Rovers Belles side in 2018.
Speaking about her decision to return to the game and join the Blades ahead of the new season, Bradley-Auckland said: "I'm really excited. As soon as I spoke to Redders and he mentioned about coming here, I knew once I was back this is where I'd be coming.
"I've been following all the games, chomping at the bit to get back. It will be nice to be back around a team environment and I'm just ready and raring to go."
Head coach Redfearn is delighted to make the talented defender his first new signing of the summer.
"Bradders is a massive signing for us. I had her at Doncaster Rovers Belles, I took her to Liverpool and she's more than capable of playing in the level above.
"You look at her CV, played international football for England, for Team GB, she's a really massive signing for us and a real statement of intent."
