Poppy Pattinson ‘hugely impressed’ with Everton boss Willie Kirk’s plans before signing

Poppy Pattinson has revealed she was ‘hugely impressed’ with head coach Willie Kirk’s plans before she signed for the club earlier this summer.

The 20 year-old England youth international left Bristol City and joined Everton on a two-year deal ahead of the Women’s Super League 2020/21 season.

Pattinson told the club’s website: "I spoke to the manager before I joined and I was hugely impressed by his plans to drive this team on and build a strong group of players who pride themselves in being motivated to work hard and achieve big things.

"We’ve got competition in the squad and there’s a desire every day to improve and get the Club where we want to be, which is at the top.

“The ambitions of the Club are set really high and I want to be a part of that journey.”

The WSL is set to begin on September 5 and Everton will face Bristol City on September 6.
