Blue Girls Capture Green

Everton Ladies have completed the signing of England Under-19 striker Mollie Green from Liverpool Ladies.

Everton Ladies have completed the signing of England Under-19 striker Mollie Green from Liverpool Ladies.

The forward has joined in time to potentially make her Blue Girls debut in the WSL Spring Series fixture at Millwall Lionesses on Sunday.

Green is delighted to have made the switch and admitted her mind was quickly made up after speaking with manager Andy Spence.

“I am absolutely buzzing to join Everton,” said the 19-year-old. “I’m really looking forward to getting started and meeting up with all the girls.

“The move was mentioned about two weeks ago, so it was quite quick. But as soon as I met Andy and heard what he had to say about the Club and what he had planned, it was a no-brainer.

“The Club has so much going for them, with the facilities they have got, the staff here and the professionalism with things like nutritionists. The group of girls here already and the calibre of player they want to attract also impressed me. I feel like I can really develop my game.”

Green joins fellow new recruits Amber Stobbs and Olivia Chance in boosting the forward options at Spence’s disposal.

While she recognises she has plenty of competition for places at her new Club, Green is keen to press her claims for game time, and is eager to make her Toffees debut against Millwall on Sunday.

“I am a goalscorer,” she said. “I like to create chances for myself and for my teammates. A big part of my game is linking up with others and bringing other attackers into the game. If I am scoring goals and creating them then I am doing my job.

“I am joining an attack that are in form, which is great. Hopefully I can bring more goals – that is my aim – but it is up to me to stake my claim for a place in the side. I will work as hard as I can to get on that pitch.

“I am really excited for the game on Sunday. I have a week’s training to go out and show that I deserve a place in the squad, so hopefully I can do that and go on to make my debut against Millwall.”
