Midfielder joins from Yeovil
Oxford United kick off the new Spring Series season at home to Everton this Sunday with new signing Emily Donovan adding to last season’s WSL 2 squad.
Emily, who is 19-years-old, signed a contract last week to join the U’s from Yeovil Town Ladies where she was part of the squad that won WSL 2 last season.
“I'm really excited to have signed for Oxford” she told us “I can't wait to kick off the Spring Series on Sunday. I know it will take time for me to settle in and get used to a new set up, but everyone has made me feel welcome and I'm really optimistic that Oxford are putting everything in place for a successful season and I want to be an integral part of that."
Midfielder Emily joins a new look United side under new coach Karl Milgate and in a new league, where ten teams compete through to the start of summer before a new WSL2 season is launched in August.
“The Spring Series is a chance for us to work on the improvements we need to make in order to push us up the table when the Winter season starts” Emily said. “Everyone connected with the team, and particularly me as a new player, has a lot of hard work to do if we are to reach our potential but this is a challenge we are all ready to take on."
The new season kicks off at Abingdon United’s Northcourt Road this Sunday at 2pm. There is always a friendly welcome so come along and support the U’s in their first game.
