Millwall Lionesses add three signings to their squad

12 February 2016

Sawiuk brings in Wynne, Brooks and Nicol

Millwall Lionesses boss Rebecca Sawiuk has boosted her squad by signing three new players in Megan Wynne, Billie Brooks and Leigh Nicol.

The triple swoop makes it seven signings so far for Sawiuk's Lionesses, who beat Watford Ladies in The SSE Women's FA Cup last weekend.

Wynne has been at Watford for over a decade having progressed through their Centre of Excellence system before becoming captain. The winger has represented Wales at U17 and U19 level and also has five senior caps to her name.

"I've been with Watford for the past 13 years so it was a big decision to come here, but definitely the right one," Wynne said.

"I'm a wide player so creating lots of opportunities for the strikers is what I'm here to do. I'm really excited."

Fellow new recruit Brooks, a defender, began her career with Lincoln City before joining Arsenal Ladies in 2011. She spent two years with The Gunners before moving to London Bees, captaining them during the 2015 season.

The former England youth international said: "I can't wait for the new season. It's a different challenge; one that I am really looking forward to.

"I'm a very passionate player and always give my all to win games, which hopefully I can help the Lionesses do."

Nicol, a midfielder with international caps for Scotland's youth sides, began her career with Arsenal and has also played for Reading and London Bees. She told millwallfc.co.uk: "The future is very bright here and I can't wait to get started now. Rebecca was a massive influence in me joining the Lionesses and it's clear that the future here is a bright one."

Discussing her three new signings, Sawiuk said: "Megan is renowned for her relentless work rate both in training and matches and I have seen this from her already. She is looking to develop because she has high personal ambitions, and I really admire that.

"I know Billie well from my time at London Bees. She is a defender with a footballing brain, and is someone who can read the game well and problem solve. Billie is also a threat going forward because she is a long-range set-piece specialist, so I'm happy we have the opportunity to work together again.

"Leigh is a technically gifted attacking midfield player with many creative elements to her play. She provides the Lionesses with a different tactical option for the 2016, and with her attitude has the desired characteristics I am looking for in a Millwall player.

"All three are fantastic additions for the Lionesses."
