Watford’s first summer signing is 30-year-old forward Bianca Baptiste, who joins from Crystal Palace after three seasons there.

Baptiste had been a mainstay of the Palace side and was their Player of the Season in 2020-21.

She previously spent a large period of her career at Spurs and helped them secure a place in the WSL.

Baptiste also played a big part when Tottenham won the FAWNL, scoring 27 goals from 34 appearances across all competitions that season.

Watford hope she will have a similar effect at that level again, as they bid to get out of the third tier at the first attempt.
