We are excited to announce the signings of Sian Watts, Grace John, Paige Crossman, Carla Tomkins & Annabel Mckechnie
Derby have had a great pre season, recruiting quality players to bolster their team for a promotion push in the 2012/2013 season.
Sian Watts joins us from Manchester Utd U18s, a creative midfielder that can spray the ball around for fun.
Grace John & Paige Crossman join us from Rotherham. Paige a whole hearted Derby County mens fan is overjoyed at now playing for the ladies. A tricky winger who isn't afraid to shoot. Grace is a versitile player, that when we have come against previously, have found very difficult to mark. Again has a very good nose for goal.
Carla Tomkins & Annabel Mckechnie have moved down the A52 from Forest. 2 young players who are very lively characters. Carla is a fiesty defender that is not afraid of a tackle and Annabel is a midfield maestro with a lovey touch and can thread a ball very well.
John Bennett, First team Manager says "We are very fortunate to have signed players with this quality, it will create great competition for places in a squad that was already brimming with confidence"
Everyone at the club is looking forward to the new season and wishes the girls the best of luck in their maiden year at Derby County Ladies
