Three arrivals and three new contracts for players so far for Reading FC Women this summer – it’s been a bit of a busy one for Kelly Chambers as she looks to build her side going into the 2020-21 campaign.
With the first fixture of our FA Women’s Super League season set to be revealed on Friday, the new season is about to get a bit more ‘real’!
We’ve welcomed Danielle Carter and Emma Mitchell to the club from Arsenal, while Deanna Cooper made the move from Chelsea.
Meanwhile skipper Natasha Harding penned an extension to her contract, while Lily Woodham also signed a new deal and Kiera Skeels agree terms on her first professional contract.
Take a watch at each of the players’ interviews below, conducted before the ink was dry on each of their new deals…
