Reading FC Women have signed versatile defender and experienced Scottish international Emma Mitchell from Arsenal.

Capped over 60 times by Scotland, Mitchell spent the second half of last season on loan at Spurs.

“Emma is a great addition to the squad and is someone who knows what it takes to win and be successful,” Royals head coach Kelly Chambers told

“Personality and character is something i look for in players and Emma’s will definitely add to and fit with the group I have already.

“I am extremely excited to work with Emma, not only because of her ability but she is a very honest, hard working player who will add that competitive edge to everything we do.”
