Exeter City Ladies are delighted to welcome three new players into their squad.
The team, who play in the South West Women’s Football League Premier Division, have signed Kathryn Mundy, Jana-Kate Richards and Imogen Wade-Palmer.
Kathryn, from the United States of America, is a central midfielder whose career highlight is winning the Tapps 3A State Championship in High School and playing for the NCSAA Division One University side.
Imogen Wade-Palmer also plays in central midfield and has played for both Portsmouth Ladies and Exeter University.
Jana-Kate Richards is a centre-forward who has played for Torquay, Alphington and Feniton and also represented her country, Northern Ireland, against Wales.
Speaking about joining Exeter, Imogen said: “When moving to Exeter for work there was only one club I wanted to play for. The ambition and young talent Exeter City has, was clear for me to see from the first training session I went to. The squad has a great team spirit and a constant desire to improve each week. I am loving being part of it.”
Kathryn added: “Exeter seemed like a great fit for me to continue my career and to forward to the rest of the season with the girls.”
Joint Exeter City Ladies manager, Abbie Britton said: “I was absolutely delighted to bring these three players in. With playing three vitally key positions, each one of them will definitely improve the squad. It’s been a great start to the season for us, and I am really excited on where we can go now we’ve added these additions.
“With Jana we get pure pace, raw talent and a striker who knows where the back of the net is. With international honours and league experience with Torquay when I heard she was keen to join us, I ensured we acted swiftly to secure her.
“Imogen was a player recommended to me by a colleague at the University of Exeter. She is a very composed and assured defensive midfielder that can also play at the back. She brings experience, of playing in the FA Women’s Premier League, and I can see a bright future for her at Exeter LFC.
“Since Kat has been training with us she’s added a tempo to the team, her positional awareness and her ability on the ball is different class. She never shies away from wanting the ball either and, as a coach, it’s a joy to find that in a player. Coming over from the States, she brings a wealth of experience from playing over there. It’s a hard place to play football. I am very excited to be working with her.”
