Ella Rutherford has become the latest player to leave the Millwall Lionesses, announcing the departure from her childhood club on Twitter.
She tweeted: “With a heavy heart I say goodbye to my childhood club. I would just like to thank all the staff and all my team mates I have worked with! I feel at this point in my career it’s time to move forward and I am excited for what the future holds! Thank you @millwalllioness 💙”
Rutherford netted five times in 15 games last season, with the 18 year old leaving the Lionesses after first signing aged just 12.
