Watford are proud to announce the signings of four excellent senior and junior goalkeepers.
Marie Hourihan returns to Watford after a season in the National Division with relegated Fulham, and Ebony Cabey-Gooden moves across from Charlton Athletic where she has worked under the tutelage of ex-England goalkeeper Pauline Cope. Also on board are England under-17 international Lauren Davey, having graduated from the Watford Centre of Excellence and Georgia Smith, 15, who plied her trade with MK Dons last season.
All four will work this year under the expert eye of goalkeeper coach Matt Ward who can't speak highly enough of his new training group, saying: "I'm very lucky to have four keepers who are willing to work so hard during training; the work rate is superb as is the quality of their goalkeeping. The great thing is, even with the competition for places, the girls have trained as a unit and helped each other all through pre-season and it is good for Watford as a club to have such quality in depth.
"I have worked with Marie before and she has always been a good solid keeper but I have been pleased to see how much she has improved all of her game during her time at the England camps and on their strength and conditioning program.
"Ebony I had seen play a few times, normally against Watford and had been impressed with her goalkeeping before I had met or worked with her, another very good keeper with amazing agility .
"Lauren is an England under-17's keeper who has really impressed me and if she keeps working and improving the way she is I feel she will have a big future in the ladies game.
"Georgia is the youngest of the four and isn't even 16 yet - although the least experienced, she is very keen to learn and improve her game, always working hard and has made a lot of progress already."
