Exeter City Women have announced their retained list ahead of the 2019/20 campaign with seven players set to depart the side which won promotion as champions from the South West Women’s Football League Premier Division last season.
The side will bid farewell to Kelsie Miller, Kate Finch, Jazz Hervin, Lannece Hole, Hanna Bennett, Erin Romanowski and Danni Skinner.
Exeter City Women would like to thank the players for their hard work and dedication which helped the club to secure promotion last season and wish them the very best for the future.
Manager Clive Watts has confirmed which players will be remaining at the club for the new season as they go into the FA Women’s National League Division One South West:

With 18 players confirmed for next season, the women’s side will continue to look to recruit players over the summer with signings expected in the near future.
Last season’s player-manager Abbie Britton, who will remain a key member of the women’s side going into the new season, said: “Myself and Clive would like to thank all of the girls who are departing the club.
“Last season was a fantastic achievement for all involved and it was pleasing to see the players conduct themselves with a determination and team spirit which ultimately led to our success.
“All eyes now turn to the new season and what will be a tough division for us, but if we continue to recruit well then I see no reason why the Exeter City Women’s side can’t continue to grow from strength to strength."
Exeter City Women would also like to place on record its thanks to Barbara Skinner who will be stepping down from the role as welfare officer at the club. As well as that, the women’s side can confirm that Aaron Wakley and Craig Butler have been added to the management team and will work with the development side.
As the side look to plan for the new campaign, they are holding open trials on Thursday, July 11 at the Cliff Hill training ground from 6pm-8pm.
