Durham have this evening unveiled Sunderland midfielder Mollie Lambert as their first summer signing.
The Wildcats informed FA Women’s Super League Full-Time of the deal in an official press release earlier today.
The 22-year-old midfielder has experience of playing in the top flight already under her belt with the player having been a member of Melanie Copeland’s Sunderland side which competed at the top level of the women’s game prior to their demotion to the third tier following the restructure of the women’s footballing pyramid in summer 2018.
Lambert has penned a contract with Durham for the upcoming campaign and she should be well-equipped to ease her way into what is a very competitive squad which has been assembled by The Wildcats boss Lee Sanders.
Upon sealing her move to Durham, Lambert told official club media sources “I’m really excited to join the club.
“One of the big pros of moving to Durham is playing with experienced players, people who have played at this league and higher – and I’m really looking to learn from them.
“It’s been a long time without a ball at my feet, and I’m looking forward to getting back into it and starting training.”
Lambert was a member of a Sunderland side which finished top of the FA Women’s National League Northern Premier Division last season prior to the campaign being declared void as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic.
