Ladd departs City Women

City Women can confirm that Hayley Ladd has left the club at the conclusion of her contract.

Club captain Ladd, 23, joined the Vixens in 2015 from Coventry and quickly became a firm favourite among supporters and team-mates alike.

The Welsh international was given the captaincy in 2016 and recently led the side in the Spring Series.

City Women manager Willie Kirk is disappointed to lose a player from his leadership group, but wishes Ladd well for the future.

He said: “I gave Hayley the captaincy at a very young age and she didn’t let me down. She handled it with maturity and led the team fantastically on the pitch and was also a model professional off it.

“She has decided not to accept a new contract from us, which is disappointing, but I understand her reasoning and wish her well for the future. It is now time for the club to move forward into the WSL 1 season; we have some exciting signings to arrive in pre-season and there is a fantastic buzz around the place - we can’t wait to get started.”

Everyone at the club would like to wish Hayley the best for the future.
