Chantelle Boye-Hlorkah will leave Everton Women when her contract expires at the end of June, having spent 16 years with the Toffees.

Also departing are Jill Scott and Alisha Lehmann, who return to their parent clubs – Manchester City and West Ham United respectively – at the end of their loan spells.

Now 25, Boye-Hlorkak originally joined Everton’s U-10s, going on to make her first senior appearance aged 17.

A career that has been dogged by three anterior cruciate ligament injuries has nonetheless seen her help Everton to two FA Cup Finals and represent England at youth level.

Manager Willie Kirk told evertonfc.com“Chantelle has been an important part of my time here so far, and I want to thank her and wish her all the best for the future.

“She is a Blue through and through and it was evident every day in training how much the club means to her.

“I know that she will want to return to the club one day and complete some unfinished business.”
