West Ham Ladies centre back Danica Revell has praised the impact captain Stacey Little has had on the side this campaign.
Little took over the armband in the latter stages of the last campaign following the departure of Becky Merritt but the midfielder has impressed Revell with her leadership and dedication to the Hammers.
“From going from centre midfield to every now and again playing alongside me at centre back, Stacey has really impressed me this season,” she said. “She says she hates dropping back into the defence but has done a fantastic job when we’ve needed her.
