Today Liverpool Ladies have announced the signing of former Arsenal Ladies player Gemma Davison. Davison will be a great addition to Liverpool’s attack for the upcoming 2014 season, adding to our already impressive attacking force.
Davison re-signed for Arsenal last March following a spell in America where, along with Bristol Academy’s Ann-Marie Heatherson, she helped Buffalo Flash to the W-League title. The following year the Flash became Western New York Flash
joining the WPS league, Davison made 12 appearances – alongside former red Whitney Engen – in another title-winning campaign scoring once.
On Tuesday the reigning Women’s Super League Champions Liverpool Ladies announced the signing of England Under-19 international Martha Harris, formerly of Lincoln Ladies/ Notts County.
Last season Martha Harris was named the Imps Player of the Season, following a campaign in which Lincoln enjoyed a great run in the Continental Cup. Helping the Imps to the final following a semi-final victory away at Liverpool, Lincoln were then defeated 2-0 by Arsenal Ladies in the final despite a brilliant defensive display.
Along with the announcement of Harris’ signing, players that are not returning to Liverpool for the 2014 season include Sarah Gregorius, Sarah Quantrill, Jess Holbrook, Rachel Laws and Whitney Engen. Good luck to all 5 of them with their new clubs!
To end on a positive note American midfielder Amanda Da Costa has signed a new contract
and will be returning to Liverpool in January, while Natasha Dowie also confirmed on LFCTV’s Thursday Night Live she will be back in 2014. When asked “You’ve played for plenty of clubs, do you feel like this is home now?”, Natasha replied “Definitely, 100%… as soon as I moved to Liverpool I just loved it.. I can’t see myself living anywhere else in England. I’m very happy”.
