The Lions have retained 14 players from last year’s signed players.

New manager Katie Whitmore told the club website: “I believe each of the girls earned the opportunity to play for us again this season due to their commitment and loyalty shown over the last campaign. It’s a strong squad for this level and I’m excited to get started with them.”
Head of recruitment Nick Farrell added: “Our trials have gone extremely well and we have definitely seen some players that will add quality to this squad. It’s exciting times to sign for Millwall Lionesses and we can’t wait to be back playing competitive football soon.”
