Carolina Morace’s first signing for London City Lionesses is central midfielder Connie Scofield on a free transfer from Leicester City.

The 24-year-old has put pen to paper on a one-year deal with the Pride, after spending the last two seasons contracted to the Foxes, including a six-month loan spell with Coventry United.

Schofield said: “The club is on a really good journey and I can’t wait to start the season here.

“I just really want to win and will give everything to help the team. I enjoyed working with [First Team Assistant Coach] Nicola Williams at Leicester City. I like her technical sessions, I like her personality as a coach, and I like her as a person – which was a really important selling point for me.

“I really enjoyed my first day training with Nicola again and I can’t wait for Carolina to get involved. I liked the intensity of the session – all of the drills are different, which makes training enjoyable. I’m just happy to be here.”
