Lucy Staniforth and Kylla Sjoman sign for Sunderland Ladies
Duo sign up ahead of 2016 season
Sunderland AFC Ladies have completed the signings of midfielder Lucy Staniforth and defender Kylla Sjoman.

The duo have penned two-year deals at the club that will see them remain on Wearside until 2017.

Signed from Liverpool Ladies, 23-year-old Staniforth returns to Wearside having made her first debut in red and white at the age of just 16.

In her debut season, Staniforth was instrumental in helping Sunderland win the FA Women’s Premier League Northern Division as well as reaching the 2009 FA Women’s Cup Final.

Hoping to make the same impact this time round, Staniforth said: “It is great to come back and see how professional the set-up has become. It’s an opportunity I’m really looking forward to and I hope that I can help the squad build on Sunderland’s success last season.”

Also joining Carlton Fairweather’s side is Canadian International Sjoman who has signed from Scottish Women’s Premier League side Celtic LFC.

The 28-year-old defender moves to Wearside with a wealth of experience, having already played in America, Germany and England.

Speaking about her move, Sjoman, who experienced the Women’s Super League when it was in its infancy with Doncaster Rovers Belles, said: “It is really exciting to be back playing in the FA WSL.

“The setup here at Sunderland is the most professional environment I have experienced since coming overseas and the players and staff have made it an easy transition for me.

“Obviously the club had a lot of success last year so we are looking forward to putting in the work and seeing what we can accomplish this year.”

Sunderland Ladies head coach Carlton Fairweather was delighted with the two new additions to his squad as they prepare for the 2016 FA WSL 1 season: “They are two players with fantastic experience at the very top level of the game and will bring so much to our squad in terms of competition and quality.”
