Coventry United Ladies Welcome Beth MerrickDate: 02 January 2019 at 11:15 by Liam Cook
Coventry United Ladies are delighted to confirm the signing of Beth Merrick.
A versatile forward, Beth joins us from FA Womens’ Championship team Sheffield United Ladies, having progressed through the youth ranks at Aston Villa, with whom she made her senior debut in 2014, at the age of 16. Beth brings an international pedigree to the Red and Green Girls, having lined up for the England Under 19s.
Red and Green Girls’ manager Jay Bradford had this to say on Beth’s arrival;
'Beth is a player I have been aware of for many years. I am thrilled that we can bring her to the club and I think she will fit in really well with the group and give us another dimension to our play'
And Beth has described her feelings on joining the Red and Green Girls;
'This is an exciting move. It's a tough one with the position the squad are currently in, but one i’m really excited to get going with and do what I can to help the team achieve great things this year"
Beth is a welcome addition to an increasingly talented Coventry United Ladies squad, and she will be available for selection for this Sunday’s SSE Womens’ FA Cup tie at home to Crawley Wasps.
