Having recently returned from their successful tour of Belgium, Keynsham Town have announced five new signings for the coming season.
Manager Barrie Newton expects two of those to make an immediate First Team impact. Those players are, Jaime Halas (22), who has signed from Bellarmine University and 18-year-old Kelly Watkins from Bristol Academy.
Jaime (pictured) is a player with a proven goalscoring record at Bellarmine, where she was consistently leading scorer over four seasons and broke the all time aggregate goals record for the college last year. She came on trial last January and impressed with her aggressive forward play which the club feels will be well suited to the English game and add to its firepower up front.
Kelly Watkins will increase options in defence and midfield. Already a Wales under-19 player, Kelly has recently been called up to the full Welsh squad for a forthcoming friendly .A player with extensive experience above her age, the club view her as an important signing.
Also joining are three younger players with the potential to make an impact in a relatively short period of time. Bethan Lloyd is a promising 18-year-old striker which the club is in the process of signing from Swansea City, where Bethan established a record as a strong running goalscorer. Also joining from a Welsh club is Amy Davies, who has signed from Newport City Strikers. A player who has impressed the management in pre-season trainng, they anticipate the 16-year-old will make good progress following her move into the Engish league system.
The club's fifth signing is Elli Dove, who has played her football at the Bristol City Centre of Excellence and has also made a favourable impression at the club with a high skill level, pace and her reading of the game.
