Former Notts County Ladies midfielder Angharad James has joined Yeovil Town Ladies ahead of their four remaining Spring Series fixtures. The Welsh International is available to play in tomorrow's clash against Reading FC Women, where she will meet former Notts County team mates Jade Moore, Jo Potter and Kirsty Linnett.
The twenty-two year old has represented Wales at U16ís, U17ís and U19ís level, whilst she has accumulated over 50 caps for the senior side. James has a considerable amount of Womenís Super League 1 experience, having competed in the league for many years; former clubs include Arsenal and Bristol Academy. The midfielder has played with a number of the Lady Glovers squad during international duty and from previous clubs. On signing, James said:
"After the disappointment of what happened at Notts County, I am delighted to join Yeovil Ladies and can't wait to get started. I'm looking forward to working with Jamie, who I can't thank enough and the talented group of players we have here. The ambition is to get maximum points from the next 4 games, putting us in a strong position leading up to the Winter season."
Jamie Sherwood believes that James will be a beneficial asset to his squad, ahead of Wednesday night's home match at the Viridor Stadium, Taunton:
"It is great to see AJ as part of the squad in the short term. She is a player I've admired for a long time and I am sure that she will soon show the YTLFC fans what I have seen in her for years. She will bring good experience of this level of football to our squad, even at her young age she has competed at this level for a few years. She brings a calming influence in possession and defensive edge out of possession. I am looking forward to working with AJ and watching her settle into the club and I hope we will see her in her new home for a lot longer than just the spring series."
