London Bees have signed Welsh International striker Helen Ward in a dual-registration deal with Watford FC Women.

With the Hornets fixtures in the FA WNL currently suspended, Ward will be available to play for the Bees during this period.

Speaking on the signing of Ward, Manager Lee Burch told londonbeesfc.com: “Helen is a top professional, she has been there, seen it and done it. She’s fully committed to Watford but with the pandemic, this has given us an opportunity to bring her in. The deal works for all parties, we haven’t scored enough goals this year, Helen will bring that both on the pitch and the training ground.

“I’m really pleased she’s here and she is really excited about the opportunity to continue playing, obviously she is looking to force herself into the Welsh National side. We’re really appreciative of Watford for their understanding of the situation and we’re excited to see her go and put on a Bees shirt. There is no doubt she will score some goals for us during the period she is here with us.”
