Today Liverpool Ladies announced the surprise signing of Bristol Academy midfielder Lucy Staniforth.
Lucy began her career at Sunderland Ladies alongside Lucy Bronze, before moving to Lincoln Ladies where she scored 9 goals in 27 appearances. In late 2012 Staniforth moved to Bristol Academy, playing half a season and making 9 appearances before suffering a serious knee injury in the 2013 FA Cup Final against Arsenal.
Staniforth has also represented England through the age groups, right up to Under-23 level. Her first senior cap probably only delayed due to injury.

Lucy Staniforth is a fantastic addition to our title-winning squad and adds to our brilliant attacking force that already includes some of the leagues best attacking players.
