Manager Tom Davies was delighted to announce the first round of players for the coming season;

“Robyn & Sammy have shown fantastic commitment to the club, having received strong offers from clubs at this level and higher up the pyramid. They’re two highly experienced players who are key figures for the club and who in their own right are fantastic players.

“Harriet’s only played a handful of games since her move from Yeovil and I’m glad she’s committed to the club for the forthcoming season. Since her arrival she’s continued to push herself in every aspect which has resulted in her consistently developing and improving her overall game. 

“Lauren is someone who we’ve been tracking over the last 12 months and we feel now is the right time for her to step up and challenge in this environment. She’s got a strong work ethic in terms of her attitude to learn and she’s slotted straight into the group since her arrival.”
