Notts County Loan Rachel Yankey From Arsenal

The England international started her career at the Gunners before re-joining them in 2005, remaining at the London club for the past eleven years.

Yankey is one of England’s most capped players, having made 129 appearances for the Lionesses, scoring 19 times, she was also part of the Team GB squad who competed at the London 2012 Olympics, appearing in all five games.

The forward joins the Lady Pies on an initial 66 day loan, and will be available for Sunday’s SSE Women’s FA Cup 5th round encounter against Durham at Meadow Lane (KO 2pm).

Notts County Manager Rick Passmoor welcomed the experience of Yankey to the Notts squad, “I don’t think I need to mention the quality that Rachel possesses, everyone in and around the game is more than aware of the devastating effect she can have on a game.”

“Rachel is a fantastic attacking option for us to have at our disposal and I’m delighted to bring her to Meadow Lane.”
