“Carla has an outstanding professional approach. She has shown great commitment so far and is a key figure in the changing room.”

Denbigh announced the good news recently that last season’s top scorer, Rosie Hughes, will be staying with the team for the 2020-21 campaign.

New players, defender Rosie Gillis, midfielder/attacker Alisha Mather, Jess Duff, a young talent who plays at the back, the exciting Cara Jones and Miriam Owen, 17, a prospect who has shown great defensive capabilities, have also joined the squad.

Meanwhile, the team continues to welcome potential new players.

Covid-19 compliant trial nights are held at the club every Tuesday between 6.30 and 8 pm. Just come along for fun, there’s no pressure on you to be the next Lucy Bronze.

Sessions take place on the Rec Pitch next to Denbigh Town’s FC main field at Central Park.
