Quantrill and Billson signed up
Millwall Lionesses have clinched the signing of two key players with Sarah Quantrill and Lillie Billson joining the first team squad for the new WSL season, which starts in March 2014.
Goalkeeper Sarah has previously played for WSL Champions Liverpool Ladies FC, Chelsea and Arsenal Ladies, whilst attacking midfielder Lillie also joins The Lionesses from Liverpool.
"I am pleased to have signed for Millwall Lionesses," said Sarah. "From Day One I was impressed with their set-up and vision for the future. My own ambition is to be as successful as possible, to develop my game and to enjoy playing for the club.
Millwall has the potential to finish high in the league and hopefully get promoted. With the players that are already here and with the players coming in, I think we have the potential to do very well."
Lillie was equally pleased to have signed for Millwall, adding: "I signed for Millwall as I want to play locally but still at a high level. I like the challenge of trying to get promoted and I like the vibe at the club between the players and the coaching staff.
I hope to win the league with Millwall and get myself a regular starting place in the team and just enjoy my football again."
Alberto Kurti, manager of The Lionesses: "I am delighted to have been able to bring players as Sarah and Lillie to the club. They will both add experience and quality to the squad that we are building.
Sarah is a fantastic goalkeeper to have – when you see her train you can really appreciate her superb skill and ability as a team player.
Lillie will be a crowd pleaser and has great pace and tempo that will add excitement to the game. Her knowledge and movement in the final third is frightening. She is a local talent who knows what it means to be a Lioness and both players are more than ready for the season ahead.
I'd like to thank the Liverpool Ladies FC Manager Matt Beard for his time and co-operation in working with Millwall to secure these successful transfers."
