England’s most capped player Fara Williams joins Arsenal Ladies
England’s most-capped player Fara Williams has joined Arsenal Ladies.
Fara has been capped 148 times by her country and was made an MBE in the 2016 New Year Honours in recognition of her achievements in the game.
She was a key member of the England Lionesses’ World Cup campaign in Canada last summer, scoring three penalties, including the extra-time winner against Germany which secured England’s third-placed finish in the tournament.
In her domestic career, Fara has lifted two league titles and one FA Cup during spells with Liverpool, Everton, Charlton Athletic and Chelsea.
Arsenal Ladies manager Pedro Martinez Losa said: “We are delighted to welcome Fara to the club. She is a great competitor and a fantastic character too.
“She is a player with huge experience at club and international level, and her reading and understanding of games is fantastic. She is an exciting addition to the squad and I look forward to working with her as we begin preparations for the 2016 season.”
