Arsenal Ladies make double summer signing

Arsenal Ladies Football Club is delighted to announce the signings of Jordan Nobbs from Sunderland WFC and Steph Houghton from Leeds Carnegie Ladies.

Central midfielder Jordan Nobbs, 17-years-old, has already enjoyed significant success since graduating from Sunderland’s Centre of Excellence and later joining the senior ranks. Jordan helped Sunderland to Premier League promotion and to the FA Women's Cup Final in 2009.

On the international stage, she has won the European Championships with England U-19s and has captained the national side at U-15s, U-17s and U-19s level.  Jordan also comes to Arsenal fresh from being awarded the FA Young Player of The Year 2010.

Versatile Steph Houghton, 22-years-old, can play in defence, midfield or up front. She joins from Leeds Carnegie Ladies, where she was part of the team that reached the FA Cup Final in 2008 and win the League Cup in 2010.  Like Jordan, Steph is a product of Sunderland’s academy system and a one-time Black Cats player. She has represented England at U-17s, U-19s, U-20s, U-23s and is now a full international, with ten first-team caps to her name.

Arsenal Ladies General Manager Vic Akers said: “I have every confidence that Jordan and Steph will be terrific additions to our team.

“Jordan is only 17-years-old, but has already shown huge potential, and I’m confident that she will prove herself on the highest level, when the Champions League gets underway in September. I should say, Jordan’s signing was possible only because of the excellent relationship we enjoy with Sunderland WFC, and I would like to thank their manager Mick Mulhern for all his help with this matter.

“At Leeds and Sunderland, Steph has proven she is a terrific player, who can play in a whole range of positions. She will be a great asset to the Arsenal Ladies side.”

New Arsenal Ladies player Jordan Nobbs said: “I am chuffed to bits to be honest. Arsenal Ladies are the stand-out side in England, and are among the best in Europe. I can’t wait to  get started!”

Fellow new Gunner Steph Houghton said: “To have the chance to play with some of the best players in the women’s game week-in week-out is really exciting. It’s a real honour to be an Arsenal Ladies player.”

I think she turned out for the Mackems at the weekend in their 2-1 reverse against Forest Ladies, she must be their one signed Super league player you are allowed to field?

Apparently we have signed Kirsty Linnett as well from Leicester City 9 and a spelling mistake Jordon Nobbs  :o


Over the same week England's U19's will be involved in the 1st Round Qualification for the U19 European Championships and 6 young gunners have been selected in the Squad.   
 
Hannah Short and Kirsty Linnett have been called up for the 1st time along with regulars Lauren Bruton, Danielle Carter, Lara Fay and new signing Jordon Nobbs.  They travel to Moldova from 7th September and play the Host, Armenia and Finland.
