Everton have confirmed that further investment will be made on their recruitment and scouting network with the club going through a restructure according to The Blue Girls’ official website.
The Merseyside club returned to Liverpool last month as they moved into a new purpose-built stadium at Walton Hall Park while manager Willie Kirk made some notable additions to his squad in January which included midfielder Izzy Christiansen from Lyon, England international goalkeeper Sandy MacIver and winger Hayley Raso, a winger with 40 international caps to her name with Australia.
The club revealed that they are going through a restructure late last night, a decision which The Blue Girls hope will see Everton become one of the elite clubs in the FA Women’s Super League. It is understood that a New Strategic Leadership Team is being created which will work closely with the men’s side while there will be focus behind-the-scenes on enhanced marketing, media and global strategies which will include a building a closer connection with local communities.
One of the key messages from Everton’s statement is that the club will continue to invest heavily in recruitment and building a top-class scouting network. This will be achieved by the club continuing to build a ‘one club’ brand which is more visible both in the Everton in the Community programme and across the world.
Everton are currently in seventh place in the FA Women’s Super League, a marked improvement on last season when they finished the campaign only above relegated club Yeovil Town.
