Vixens Announce New Signing

Guiseley Vixens are delighted to announce the new signing of a former England youth international, Fiona Worts.

Worts who plays predominantly as a striker but can also play as a number ten scored 20 goals in just 17 starts for Leicester City Women has been applying her trade in Australia for the past season.

Her former clubs include Nottingham Forest Centre of Excellence and the Leicester City Centre of Excellence.

Talking about the signing, manager Glen Preston said: “She’s a player I’ve been after for a few years, to be honest. She’s a natural goal scorer who has a fantastic left foot.

“Whilst she operates mostly as a number nine, she’s equally proficient as a ten. She has wonderful feet to go past players with ease and she’s a great technician which suits our style of play.

Her ability to score from 30 yards as effortlessly as she can a poach from the six-yard box is a bonus …she is a wonderful signing for the club.”

On joining the club, Worts said: “I know a few players at the club who have had great things to say. After their successful season last season leading to their promotion, I’m looking forward to joining them in the WPL and seeing what we can do.”

Worts aims to join up with the squad at the end of her finals in Australia.
