Cambridge United Women sign up young sensations Simmons & Perfect.
Cambridge United Women are delighted to announce the signings of young duo Tahnee Perfect and Isabella Simmons.
Steve Edwards is certainly building for the future with these two exciting signings taking his summer additions up to four.
Tahnee Perfect is a central midfielder and Isabella Simmons an attacker.
Both of the new signings are 16 years of age and are products of the Cambridge United Centre Of Excellence and have impressed the coaching staff during trials and pre season. Manager Edwards is full of praise for the two young starlets.
Manager Edwards said “I am thrilled to be bringing both Tahnee and Bella into the club. Despite their young age and relative inexperience in terms of senior football, the talent they both have is hugely impressive and I genuinely feel that they are exciting prospects to watch out for.”
He added “They bring enthusiasm and energy to the group and you can get an immediate sense of their passion for football. Tahnee is a very technical player, calm on the ball and rarely gives away possession with fitness levels that are up there with the best at the club.”
Edwards continued “Bella is a more attacking option with fantastic skills at her feet and she knows where the goal is. I think our supporters will really take to both players and I look forward greatly to seeing their progress this season.”
We were also able to speak to the young duo. Tahnee couldn’t hide her excitement about having signed for the club as she makes her first step into senior football. She said “I am very excited about joining Cambridge United women’s team. The ladies and the coaching staff have made me feel extremely welcome.”
Perfect added “I am enjoying pre season and can’t wait for the games to begin and thoroughly look forward to the future ahead with this team.”
Bella echoed her new team-mate’s sentiments. “Since joining Cambridge United Women’s team I’ve already started to improve as an individual and a team player. It has created many opportunities that I can’t wait to explore. The team is strong, welcoming and kind and I hope to achieve great things with them this season.”
Everyone at the club wishes both Tahnee and Bella every success for the coming season.
