More signings for Women

17 October 2013

Giddings and McGee join Royals

Reading FC Women have made two more additions to the squad, as Georgie Giddings (left) and Kirsty McGee (right) join the Royals.

The duo, who have previously played for Chelsea and Portsmouth respectively, are the latest signings confirmed under new manager Jayne Ludlow - following the arrival of two attacking players in September.

McGee and Giddings both featured in friendly wins over Chelsea (4-1) and Watford (8-1) as the pair got accustomed to playing alongside their new teammates.

The new additions will complement a very talented group of players who secured the League and Cup double last season, and look forward to a new challenge in the Womens Super League 2 in April 2014.
