Crystal Palace have signed free agent Hannah Churchill ahead of the Women’s FA Cup clash against Brighton & Hove Albion on Sunday.
Churchill, who was at Charlton Athletic until recently, told cpfc.co.uk: “I’m so excited [about Sunday]. So proud of the team to get to where they’ve got to. It will be such a good test against a WSL team.”
The central midfielder said she enjoys “working for the team, being vocal and dictating the midfield,” although that won’t be a surprise to her new Eagles teammates, with Churchill revealing: “I’ve played with Annabel [Johnson] at Charlton previously. And I’ve also played against Palace for the last two or three years, so I recognise plenty of faces.”
