Playmaker Lucy Whipp joined Blues from St John's University in the United States.

She can play in any position across the front three or as an attacking midfielder.

During her four year spell in America, she notched nine goals and recorded 12 assists, and has played with England international Rachel Daly.

INTERVIEW:

LUCY WHIPP IS AMONG BLUES WOMEN'S CLUTCH OF NEW SIGNINGS FOR THE FORTHCOMING CAMPAIGN.

She has spent the past four years at St. John's University, in the New York City borough of Queens, playing for the Red Storm in the Big East.

But now she's back after completing her studies a better and more rounded player than she was when making her Barclays Women's Super League debut aged 17 for Everton Ladies.

Ironically, Everton are the opposition for Blues opening league game of the season at Solihull Moors on 8 September (2pm), and Whipp can't wait.

We caught up with the Ormskirk-born attacker this week after training to talk to her about joining Blues Women and her return to these shores from the USA.

How have you settled in Lucy?
"The team and the staff have been really welcoming. There's a lot of new players so we've all kind of been in the same situation, so that's nice and it helps. We are all trying to build up something good together."

Does it help that so many of the squad are new and have been thrown into things together?
"Yes, finding a house with one another, small things like that. Just getting used to the surroundings, training, new team - we're all in the same boat."
