Casey Stoney is delighted by the squad she has assembled at the club:
“We’ve gone young, we’ve gone exciting, we’ve gone entertaining. I’m more than aware that we’re bringing 21 strangers together but I’m really excited about the squad.
“They’re excited, they want to be here, they want to do well. We’ve gone out and hand-picked the best young players in the country.”
