Everton Ladies manager Andy Spence

Everton Ladies have signed Megan Walsh and Gabrielle George ahead of the new Women's Super League season.

Goalkeeper Walsh, 19, and 17-year-old defender George have both been capped at Under-19 level by England.

Walsh had time on loan with the Blues from Aston Villa last season, while George joins from Manchester United.

"Both Megan and Gabby fit the profile of the type of person and player we want," manager Andy Spence told the Everton website.

"To have Megan on board really does provide us with two goalkeepers who are of top quality and who will push each other on.

"Gabby is the youngest member of the squad and, because of that, she will be developed accordingly to allow her to understand the demands of senior football.

"She is someone who has significant potential and we will be mindful of ensuring we give her the right exposure to the first-team environment, but also the development squad environment as well, as both will be crucial to her development."
