Duo in boost for Blades
 Women's Football FA Women's Championship News - 21 Jun 2021
FA Women's Championship News - Duo in boost for Blades - 21 Jun 2021 - Women's Football NewsSheffield United are delighted to confirm that striker Courtney Sweetman-Kirk and young forward Lucy Watson have signed new deals at the club and will remain Blades for the 2021-22 season.
Sweetman-Kirk joined the club last summer after a two-year spell with Liverpool and enjoyed a solid first season at United, scoring eight goals across her debut campaign.
Consistently one of the top scorers in the league over the years, Sweetman-Kirk found the net five times in the league last season, plus a 12-minute hat-trick against Middlesbrough in our Vitality Women's FA Cup encounter.
The striker became a regular member of the starting eleven in the second half of the season and Sweetman-Kirk is looking forward to another year in red and white.
"The season we had last year, it was unfortunate the way it ended because we wanted to end higher, but I think you saw as we went on what we were doing with Redders and the process that we were getting there," she said.
"I love the atmosphere of the club and the players we're signing is important and for me to work under Redders, that's massive for me."
Head coach, Neil Redfearn, added: "Courtz was brilliant for us last year. She was ultra-professional, had to bide her time, made quite a few appearances off the bench. She played something like two games and scored three goals and got her foot in the door and she's been different class since.
"You know you're going to get goals, but it's her work ethic too, how infectious she is, she makes other players want to work harder."
Watson joined the club halfway through the 2019-20 season from Doncaster Rovers Belles, but the England youth international had to wait until October last year for her debut after her first campaign was curtailed by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Making her senior Blades debut at just 16, Watson's talent ensured she featured in 15 games from October onwards, including several starts, scoring in both of the team's Vitality Women's FA Cup games at the end of the season.
The team's final game saw the teenager find the net against Barclays FA Women's Super League opponents Tottenham Hotspur, and head coach Neil Redfearn is excited for what's to come from Watson in the new season.
"She made great strides last season. It's been a gradual process, but she's ready, we saw that, she played well against Spurs in our last game and I look at her now and there's a real maturity about her game now. She understands the roles across the front three and gives us real quality."
Watson herself added: "I've really enjoyed my first season fully as a Blade. Now I've started getting some minutes I just hope next season I can progress further and really make my mark in the Championship.
"I think my goal against Tottenham showed I'm hungry for more this season and I'm just ready to see what this season brings and hopefully it brings more goals for me."
