New signing Ashlee on joining Millwall Lionesses
Millwall Lionesses were pleased to announce their latest signing on Saturday, Ashlee Hincks, prior to the 2-2 draw against Yeovil Town Ladies.
After the forward's impressive debut Ashlee spoke about joining Millwall and her plans for the season in the FA WSL.
Hincks played this past winter season with FA Southern Premier League side Gillingham Ladies, scoring an impressive 20 goals in 23 games and even though Gillingham will always have a place in her heart, she felt that the time was right to move on.
"It was time, the girls at Gills were great and there are some really great youngsters there, but I needed a new challenge and I thought that Millwall would be a good fit for me," she said.
"I know some of the girls, I'd spoken to Dan (Mlinar) and I really rate his attitude towards football and the team. He has a fantastic vision and playing style for the team he has and also the development of the women's game at Millwall.
"I think Dan can get the best out of people, he is welcoming and genuine, such a hard worker himself so he is definitely someone that you want to work hard for."
Having joined the Lionesses just before the international break Ashlee insists that she doesn't have any particular aims for the season and is happy to be involved with a strong squad.
"I'm coming into this with a blank slate, I want to see how I fit into the team, and how the team progresses through the next three games and after the international break," she added.
"I didn't expect to start against Yeovil on Saturday, Dan said to me when I arrived that he was throwing me in at the deep end. No pressure!
"I was so impressed with everyone of my team-mates, everyone worked really hard and I think that if that is the standard and we carry on like that then those draws will soon turn into wins.
"Yeovil are going for promotion and they are one of the strongest squads in the league and for us to perform the way we did today we have done ourselves proud – a draw was a fair result."
