Fylde Ladies continue to strengthen their squad for next season with the addition of two new young stars.

Everton midfielder Eve Kennerley (20) and Manchester City winger Chloe Adams (19) have both arrived with elite backgrounds and now hope to establish themselves in manager Luke Swindlehurst’s side.

The ladies team have already sealed deals for England star Natasha Flint and Arsenal goalkeeper Hollie Augustus amongst others as they look to win promotion to the Womens Super League 2.

Kennerley said of her move: “I’m really looking forward to this new challenge and the new season ahead. I’ve been so impressed with all the new plans and facilities that we will have this coming season.

“I am confident, as are all the other girls, that we will have a strong campaign. I can’t wait to develop more and more as a player and work hard this season for myself and the team.”

Adams was equally delighted to join the club: “I’m very happy to have signed for Fylde and now I’m relishing the new season kicking off. This is a huge new challenge and a real chance to progress further as a player. I know that as a team we are going to achieve great things this season.”

Manager Swindlehurst believes the new duo add yet more quality to the squad: “It’s a very positive move for us. Both players are ambitious and have the qualities needed to be successful. They have been very good in training over the last two weeks and I’m delighted to add both to the squad.

“They are both used to being in elite environments and their professionalism and focus are exactly they kind of qualities that we are looking for.”
