Hannah Cain has joined Everton after the England U-20 international’s former club Sheffield FC withdrew from the FA Women’s Championship.
Cain is currently recovering from an injury which ruled her out of the U-20 Women’s World Cup.
While admitting finding out she was going to miss the tournament “felt like the end of the world at the time”, she says sealing a move to Everton has proved the perfect tonic.
“It’s a big moment [to sign for Everton],” she told evertontv. “It’s what every girl who plays football dreams of as a youngster, to be a professional. It’s been a long time coming. It’s amazing
“I’m absolutely buzzing to get started. It’s my first professional contract and there’s nowhere I’d rather be.”
