Crystal Palace Women’s first signing of the summer is goalkeeper Chloe Morgan who recently left Tottenham Hotspur at the end of her contract there.

Morgan, who started 18 of 20 games in Spurs’ 2018/19 promotion-winning campaign from the FA Women’s Championship, told cpfc.co.uk: “I’m so excited to be joining Crystal Palace Women. Palace have always been a team I have a lot of respect for and I’m looking forward to building on their past success and hopefully making history with the team going forward.”

Manager Dean Davenport made a goalkeeper his priority this summer following Lucy Gillett’s departure. He said: “Chloe is a major coup for the club. In bringing her to Palace, we have signed someone with valuable experience who knows exactly what is required to get promoted from this league.

“We returned to training on Thursday this week, and I can already tell Chloe will fit in with the squad well.”
