“Her leadership qualities, on and off the pitch, have been asset to the team environment, and she will bring further stability to our back line, enabling us to build on principles and partnerships as we work toward achieving our goals.”

King said; “I’m excited to continue the journey as a group and see what we can achieve this year.

“I’ve returned to the Club this season because I feel as though we showed some really positive glimpses at times but never really got into our full stride.

“I’m hoping to get a positive season of football under my belt again, and make some improvements in my personal game.”
