We can confirm the departures of Josie Green, Angela Addison and Rachel Williams following the conclusion of their contracts.
Viktoria Schnaderbeck and Jiali Tang have returned to their respective parent clubs after their loan agreements came to an end.
Josie is the longest serving player to depart after six seasons at the Club. The Wales international was part of the quadruple-winning squad in 2016/17 and went on to make 141 appearances in the heart of our midfield as we progressed through the leagues and established ourselves in the top-flight, scoring six goals.
England under-21s international Angela departs after four seasons, registering 90 appearances and 19 goals in all competitions – six of which came in the 2018/19 season as we secured promotion to the Barclays FA Women’s Super League (WSL).
Forward Rachel leaves us after two seasons, scoring eight goals in 41 appearances during that time including a memorable strike against Arsenal that was named our Goal of the Season.
Austria international Viktoria featured five times across our backline after joining on loan from Arsenal in January, 2022.
China international Jiali, who made history as the first Chinese player to play in the WSL when she signed from Shanghai Shengli last summer, returns to her parent club after scoring once in 13 appearances.
Esther Morgan, Eleanor Heeps and Gracie Pearse have returned to the Club following the conclusion of their loan spells at Leicester City, Blackburn Rovers, and Crystal Palace.
Meanwhile, we have exercised the option to extend the contracts of Shelina Zadorsky, Ria Percival, Tinja-Riikka Korpela, Jessica Naz, Rosella Ayane, Maéva Clemaron and So-hyun Cho for a further year.
Head Coach Rehanne Skinner said: “It has been an unforgettable season for everyone associated with the Club. I am so proud of the character, determination, and commitment from every individual to achieve our highest ever league finish and reach the semi-finals of a Cup competition for the first time.
“It’s never easy saying goodbye to players who have made such huge contributions to the success of the Club. The players leaving us have been instrumental to our journey and Spurs Women would not be where we are today without their efforts. They are exceptional people on and off the pitch and I would like to thank them for everything they have contributed to the Club during their time here. We will always be here to support them, and we wish them the very best for the next stage of their careers.”
