Albion Women have further strengthened their squad ahead of the new season by signing Chelsea duo Laura Rafferty and Jenna Legg.

Midfielder Legg, 19, has been capped seven times by England at under-19 level while defender Rafferty, 20, is a senior Northern Ireland international.

The pair - who both came through the academy at Chelsea - join fellow recent signings Emma Byrne and Alessia Russo in joining Albion prior to their FA Cup clash with AFC Wimbledon next month and the start of the Women's Super League Spring Series.

Interim boss George Parris said: "We are really pleased to have added two very bright young talents to our squad. Both players have great experience at international level and will add to the squad we already have in place here.

"Laura is an excellent defender, with great experience at senior international level. Jenna too has played for England from under-15 level upwards. They both have great futures ahead of them and will play a significant role for us in the spring series."

Albion travel to AFC Wimbledon in the third round of the FA Women's Cup on Sunday February 5 and then kick off their Spring Series campaign at London Bees the following Saturday. Their first home game is against Oxford United at Lancing on Sunday February 26 with season tickets available for £20 for adults and £10 for children.
