Everton have signed Republic of Ireland international Megan Campbell and England U-19s goalkeeper Libby Hart.

Campbell is a 30-year-old defender who has nearly 50 caps for her country and has played for Manchester City and Liverpool.

Campbell told evertonfc.com: “It’s a different challenge for me, coming into the WSL with a new team, and I am looking forward to it. Hopefully I can thrive in the blue of Everton and I’m confident it can be a successful season for the team.

“Last season, the squad did very well under Brian and proved they can go places under his leadership. This season can be another step in that process.

Manager Brian Sorensen said: “We are delighted to welcome Megan to the club. She is a player who is rich in experience both domestically and internationally with Ireland.

“Heading into the new season, we wanted to add some experience to our group and Megan ticks every box in that department.”

Libby Hart, an 18-year-old shot-stopper has joined Sorensen’s squad, having previously been at Birmingham City and Manchester City.

Hart said: “To get my first pro contract at 18 is an amazing feeling, but it’s just the start of the journey. I can’t wait to get going.”

Sorensen added: “We’re pleased to have Libby join the club. She’s applied herself really well in the short time she has been here.

“I’m sure she will hugely benefit from working closely with the elite experienced goalkeepers we already have at Everton in Courtney [Brosnan] and Emily [Ramsey] and we are confident she can develop into a top-class goalkeeper.”
