Dulwich Hamlet have signed Exeter midfielder Daniella Tyson and AFC Wimbledon defender Liz Berkeley.
Tyson brings experience from the National League. She helped Exeter to a league title in 2019 and was named Player’s Player of the Season in 2019-20.
She said: “I’m excited to get to know the team and play with them. I’ve heard a lot about how good the fans are here and the amount of people that you get, so that will be incredible when all the fans are here eventually.
“I usually play as an attacking midfielder. I can bring a bit of creativity to the team.”
Full-back Berkeley signs from the Dons and will join up with former team-mate Sophie Manzi at Dulwich. She has also played for Crystal Palace and Whyteleafe. At Palace, she was part of the team who won the 2015/16 FA Women’s Premier League Division One in an unbeaten season.
“Sophie was in my ear quite a lot, saying it was a good club,” said Berkeley. “Obviously I’ve seen a lot about the club and since you’ve come over to Dulwich, I’ve been really impressed with the set-up. That’s helped me make the decision.”
“The position I play is full-back. I’ve played on the right, the left – sometimes I’ve played in a back three as well. My attributes are probably speed and my one versus one defending.
“I’m really excited to make my debut here at the club. Manzi’s told me how exciting it is to play in front of all these people.”
With the return of organised sport, Tyson and Berkeley were able to meet their new team-mates for the first time and join in with a full training session at Champion Hill.
