Durham Women FC are delighted to announce the signing of defender Danielle Cox.
The 27-year-old joins the Wildcats as they look to continue a strong start to the season – and brings a rich experience of the second tier having previously played for Doncaster Belles, Sheffield FC and Sheffield United.
Cox was most recently with Celtic in Scotland’s top flight, but has now agreed to join the Wildcats and bolster Lee Sanders’ already strong squad.
And the centre back was delighted to pledge her future to Durham.
“It feels good,” said Cox after putting pen to paper.
“I known about Durham for several years now having played in this league, and they seem like a good outfit and a good team to be a part of it.
“I’m happy to be here.
“I’ve played at this level for a good ten years so I know the players and I feel like I could bring a lot to this team – especially some experience.
“It’s been a really good start,” she continued.
“Everyone has been so welcoming and I’ve slotted straight in – and I can’t wait to get started on the pitch.
“Not many clubs have access to the facilities we do, so to have access to these is pretty good.”
Manager Lee Sanders added: “She was a player we just missed out on prior to pre season – she had committed to Celtic – after impressing whenever she’s been in an opposing side.
“However, a change of circumstances allowed us to re-visit things.
“She will add depth to the squad and knows the league and it’s requirements, she’s training well and is getting to know the squad.”
Cox has received all relevant international clearance and will be available to form part of the squad – if selected – against Coventry United on Sunday, November 3.
