Arsenal Ladies Football Club is delighted to announce the arrival of two new players to further strengthen the team.

Joining the Ladies, who won the Domestic Treble last season, will be English International Corrine Yorston (26) as well as Scottish defender Jennifer Beattie (18).

For the past three seasons Yorston has captained Bristol Academy as well as making a significant impact with the England squad, being selected as one of the 17 England players to receive a Central Contract with the FA. A versatile left footed player who can play in defence or midfield, Corrine prefers to be situation in left-back.

Beattie will be joining Arsenal from Celtic Ladies who are currently at the top of the Scottish Women’s Premier League. After demonstrating her skill and attacking instincts while at Celtic Jennifer has also proved to be an influential player for her country where she is part of their A squad.  In just ten appearances for Scotland, Beattie has scored twice from her defensive position.

Newly appointed Arsenal Ladies manager, Tony Gervaise, said; “We are extremely pleased to find both Corrine and Jennifer and have them join Arsenal Ladies. Both players will be coming to us with a vast amount of experience developed at both Club and international level and will make a valuable impact within our current squad.

“To continue the success of the Arsenal Ladies over the past 22 years we must ensure we also develop our squad and our players to the highest level possible.”

Arsenal would like to welcome both Corrine and Jennifer to the Arsenal Ladies, and we all look forward to watching them over the coming season.
