Kelly signs on at Sunderland
 Women's Football News 5 Aug 2008
Kelly signs on at Sunderland - 5 Aug 2008 - Women's Football NewsSunderland are delighted to announce the signing of England international midfielder Kelly McDougall from Everton.
Manager Mick Mulhern said: "Kelly is an excellent player who will add extra quality and much needed experience to our squad. In January I was made aware of the fact Kelly would be moving to the North East and at that point I knew she had to be our number one transfer target, as England international players don't come along every week. Obviously we had two good seasons in the National League and to be honest I was a big fan of Everton and the quality they possessed. I saw Kelly play against us on five or six occasions and she always put in top class performances.
"Kelly is a current England senior international with 9 caps to her name. She has represented her country at all age groups. I am delighted she will be adding to those caps whilst a Sunderland player. Our aim is obviously promotion and Kelly's big game experience will certainly help. She was in the Everton side that beat Arsenal in the League Cup Final earlier this year and the games don't get much bigger than that.
"I contacted Kelly, as well as her club Everton, on 1st June and was informed there were other clubs also interested. To be honest I would have been surprised if there wasn't, and I knew we would have competition for her signature. It can't have been easy leaving such a successful club, especially and after 10 years of very loyal service.
"I am delighted that Kelly sees her future with Sunderland and I'm sure the rest of our squad will be as delighted as I am."
Sunderland have further boosted their squad with the arrival of Vicky Greenwell from local neighbours Newcastle United.
"Certain players were targeted as potential signings during the pre-season and the key factor in each case was the player had to have the ability to add something extra to the squad," added Mulhern. "Vicky Greenwell certainly comes into that category and I'm therefore delighted to sign her for Sunderland.
"Vicky is a good athlete who has had a good football education at Newcastle, as well as the Women's Academy at Gateshead College. I tried to sign her a few years ago, but unfortunately on that occasion she decided to stay with her club. I had no problem with that and her honesty was appreciated.
"She is a good footballer and, being naturally left footed, she will add balance to our defence. Vicky has had two years in our league with Newcastle and was their captain last season, so obviously she will be bringing that valuable experience to our club. She will also add much needed competition to the first team squad which can only be healthy throughout a long season.
"I know Vicky won't regret making the switch and everyone at Sunderland is delighted she is with us."
