Liverpool Ladies have today completed the signing of Doncaster Rovers Belles defender Sophie Bradley-Auckland.

Having progressed through the youth system at Nottingham Forest Ladies, Bradley-Auckland then joined Leeds United Ladies in 2006 for a four year spell.

Following her spell in Yorkshire, Bradley-Auckland then joined Lincoln Ladies and Notts County Ladies before joining the Belles in 2017 helping them to WSL2 title last season.

On completing the switch to Liverpool Ladies, Bradley-Auckland said: “This is a great move for me and I’m really excited for the new season. Liverpool is a fantastic football club with real ambitions to be challenging for trophies again so this was an easy decision to make.

“The opportunity to work alongside Neil (Redfearn) again was also a real pull as I feel as though he helped to develop my game to the next level last season. Although this is a transition period for the club, having spoken to Neil there is some exciting plans for the future and I cannot wait to get the season started.”

Liverpool Ladies manager Redfearn said: “Securing the services of Sophie is another great acquisition for the club. She was immense for Doncaster Rovers Belles last season and also has the experience of having played WSL1 football before as well as representing England at senior level.

“Sophie is a very composed defender who is extremely confident on the ball and I’m sure she that will become a real fans favourite with the Liverpool Ladies supporters.”
