Lydia Williams became our third signing of the summer on Wednesday when she joined us from Melbourne City.
The Australia international has a wealth of experience in the NWSL and W-League - but now she’s ready for a new challenge in north London.
“It’s pretty surreal,” Williams told Arsenal.com. “I remember watching Arsenal as a young kid, it was like the only football to watch back in Australia, so it’s amazing to be a part of the team.
“To be honest, I’m a little bit nervous for my first training session! But it’s another new challenge and I’m really excited, so hopefully everyone doesn’t find me too crazy or anything like that.I know goalkeepers seem to be labelled as that!
“I’m looking forward to it and really can’t wait to get out of here and land in London.”
