West Ham Ladies midfielder Lindsey Morgan has praised the impact the Hammer’s summer signings have had so far this season despite the club’s indifferent start to their campaign.
A dramatic opening day victory against QPR thanks to a last-gasp winner from Kelley Blanchflower gave the team a perfect start before defeats away at Keynsham Town in the League Cup and Spurs brought the Ladies back down to earth with a bump before they beat Lewes.
Morgan, 34, also scored against the R’s on the opening day and said the new players signed by manager Julian Dicks had helped to strengthen the squad massively and is predicting a good sea- son for the Hammers.
‘We now have options in every position on the bench which is really good for us as the season is long and strength in depth will be needed to get through all the league and cup games,’ the 34-year-old said. ‘Each of the new players have brought in their own strengths; you’ve got the pace of Emma Sherwood, skill of Vicky Kinsman, strength of Ruby Baxter, and a ‘keeper in Nikita Runnacles who is quick off her line and a brilliant shot stopper.
