Notts County Net Durack, Moore And Potter

Moore and Potter, who have a combined 49 caps for England, left Birmingham City earlier this month having agreed a deal to buy themselves out of the remainder of their respective contracts.

Both Jo and Jade were part of Mark Sampson’s history making England squad, who claimed bronze, for the first ever time, at the FIFA Women’s World Cup in Canada last year.

Moore has worked with manager Rick Passmoor before, the central midfielder spending three years at Leeds United where she won the Premier League Cup under Rick’s guidance.

The 25-year-old has progressed through the international age groups, playing at Under-17, under-19, under-20 and under-23s level before making her senior call up in 2011, at the age of 21.

Fellow England midfielder Jo Potter also progressed through the international set up, playing for the under-16s and under-19s before making her debut as a 19-year-old in 2004.

Potter’s domestic career has seen her play at the likes of Charlton Athletic, Everton and Arsenal, but it is with midlands side Birmingham that she has spent the majority of her impressive career, spending almost 10 years with the Blues over three spells.

First team manager Rick Passmoor welcomed the duo to Meadow Lane, “We’ve been long admirers of both Jo and Jade and we tried to bring them in at the beginning of the season, but for one reason or another we couldn’t get it across the line.”

“I know there was a lot of interest in both players and I’m delighted to now be able to welcome them into this football club and I’m sure they will give us further options and depth in our already strong midfield.”

Australian born Durack qualifies for the Lionesses through her mother, and has consistently impressed in the England set up, including the U-20 FIFA World Cup in Canada in 2014, whilst also being named in the top 10 players in the U-19 European Championships in 2013.

Alongside progressing through the international ranks, including making her senior debut in the 2014 Cyprus Cup, Durack studies Human Development Regenerative Biology at the prestigious Harvard Unviersity in America.

Lizzie, who has also featured in the WSL with Everton, joins fellow England keepers Carly Telford and Megan Walsh in the Notts squad, as manager Rick Passmoor says competition for the number one spot increases.

“Lizzie is a hugely respected keeper who has worked hard to make herself a regular in the England set up at a number of age levels.”

“We’ve already got two very good goalkeepers at this club, but Lizzie is not here to make up the numbers, she will be coming here to fight for the number one spot.”
