England U20 international, Mayumi 'Maz' Pacheco joined the Royals from WSL2 winners Doncaster Rovers Belles, while England U23 international Millie Farrow has signed from Bristol City ahead of the new season.

Left-back Pacheco, 19, won the Women's second tier with the Belles last season, having made 16 appearances on the way to the title.

The youngster has also represented England at U17 and U19 level, having started her career at Liverpool before a successful spell at Doncaster.

On her arrival, Pacheco said: "I’m really excited to be back in a WSL1 side. I think Reading are going in the right direction with them finishing 4th last season and now wanting to push on for a higher place this season.

"I’ll be around senior players that I can learn and thrive off which is something I am really looking forward to."

Prolific striker, Millie Farrow has also joined the Royals after signing from Bristol City over the weekend.

Farrow, 22, has represented England at U19 and U23 level, and returned an impressive 11 goals from 16 appearances for Bristol last term.

Bristol will be lining up against the Royals next season, after Farrow's goals helped propel them to promotion in the WSL2 alongside Doncaster.

After joining, Farrow said: "With how exciting the squad is, I think it’s a really good squad and the quality of players is exciting, and that’s the kind of team I want to play in."

Both players will start training with their new team-mates ahead of the new WSL1 season starting, with the Royals hoping to replicate and build upon their best ever finish of 4th place in the top tier of women's football.
