The Everton Ladies team will play in the Women’s Super League 1 this season starting in September. Under Head Coach Andy Spence, the Blue Girls have been on a recruitment drive adding players to the squad.

Earlier this week the team made their first two full-time signings, defenders Gabby George and Georgia Brougham, and added another pair of players towards the end of the week.

Striker Claudia Walker penned a two year-deal with the club, after topping the scoring charts during spring games.

She was followed soon by fellow striker Simone Magill, who was just behind Walker in scoring this spring. Walker, a North Ireland international, had formed a lethal partnership upfront with Magill, and the duo will look to carry that form into the new season.

The team has a series of friendlies lined up ahead of the September start of the WSL1 that the team will be playing in. The FA founded the WSL to develop the women’s game in 2011.
