Bruinenberg, also 24, has played for Verona in Italy, and is a former Netherlands Under-19 international.

"Both girls have been on our radar," said head coach Carlton Fairweather.

"We are delighted to be bringing in two good quality players who both have experience of playing some of the top teams in Europe in the UEFA Women's Champions League."
