Addicks manager Riteesh Mishra told of his latest signings:

Charlotte Kerr – 
“She’s a great athlete, comfortable technically and someone who will pick up the tactical info quickly and this is important for us moving forward.

Amelia Ritchie – 
“She’s got a lot of potential which we are excited to work with. She adds some international experience to us but is someone who needs to prove herself at this level, which we want to help her develop and do.”

Amber Stobbs – 
“She’s got good technique which we knew from last season playing against her. She’s positive in 1v1 situations, her running capacity is very good, and the big thing for me is she’s got the confidence to compete at a higher level which I think is important for us.”
