Notts County sign Laura Bassett, Alex Greenwood and Jess Sigsworth.
FA Women’s Super League club Notts County have announced they have signed international trio Laura Bassett, Alex Greenwood and Jess Sigsworth.
Laura Bassett joins the club from Chelsea Ladies where she spent the 2014 FAWSL season. The central defender has signed a three year deal with Notts County. Bassett has earned 43 caps for her country, netting two goals.
England international full back Alex Greenwood has signed for Notts County from Everton Ladies. Alex earned her first call up to the senior England Women’s National Team for the 2014 Cyprus Cup, so far she has earned 6 caps.
Jess Sigsworth completes the trio of top quality signings for Notts County. The striker makes the move from Doncaster Rovers Belles who currently compete in the FA Women’s Super League 2. Sigsworth is a key youth international player having played all three games for England at the FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup in 2014. The 20 year old also made her debut for the England U23 side, in 2014, at the age of 19.
Manager Rick Passmoor said on the club’s official website: “These are three players with international pedigree, who all add something very valuable to our squad. Laura has a host of experience behind her in the women’s game, at both the top domestic level and international level and that will benefit everyone in our squad, as much as they have qualities that will benefit Laura. Alex has a lot of promise behind her, promise that she has already shown at the top international level and we hope she will continue to develop here at Notts County and become a top international player there’s a hunger and desire to do that. Then you’ve got Jess who is still progressing through the international age groups and has already been recognised at under 23 age level, despite only being 19 at the time. I’m delighted to welcome all three players to this football club.”
The trio join Rachel Williams who signed for Notts County yesterday.
