Sheffield United are delighted to announce the signing of former England forward Jess Clarke from Liverpool.
The 32-year-old spent four years on Merseyside where she continued what has been a glittering career to date, now committing herself to the Blades for the new season.
A tricky winger with the ability to both score and create, Clarke has found the net 31 times during her years in the FA Women's Super League, and played and scored in the FA Cup final for Leeds United as a youngster back in 2008.
Clarke spent seven seasons with Lincoln City and Notts County where became one of the league's best wingers and her England career also took off, with Clarke going on to make 52 appearances for the senior national team, scoring 11 goals, including a strike against the USA and a goal at the 2011 World Cup against New Zealand.
With an array of top level experience and talent, Clarke comes to the Blades from FA Women's Championship rivals and is looking forward to embarking on a new chapter in her career:
"I'm really excited, I'm really positive, but more importantly I'm feeling grateful too. I think initially from having the conversation with Redders I knew this is the right environment from me and I'm just really excited to join the journey.
"If you look at the team from a distance, they've always competed and that for me was very desirable. The way they play through the third, they were always scoring goals and it's credit to Redders how he's implemented his way of playing on the pitch."
Head coach Neil Redfearn is also delighted to add yet another player with international experience to his ranks after the signing of defender Sophie Bradley-Auckland.
"It's a great signing for us. Jess has got great pedigree if you look at the level she's played at. An international footballer, scored goals at the highest level, we're trying to evolve as a group and add players who give us a little bit of an edge on what we had and Jess is one of those without a doubt."
