City on Scott:
Jill Scott was the first of two England internationals to have made the move from Merseyside to Manchester in the winter of 2013.
Having made more than 70 appearances at international level, the capture of the central midfielder was made a top priority by City's new managerial team.
Both have lauded Scott’s calibre and upon completing the signing, sounded assured that the acquisition of the ex-Everton captain will immeasurably boost the squad’s aspirations for the coming season.
At 26, Scott brings a wealth of experience to a City side that will benefit no end from her defensive capabilities and eye for goal. She played a key role in England Women’s 2011 World Cup campaign, scoring twice in four games. She has also represented Great Britain last summer at the London Olympics.
The box-to-box midfielder began her career at hometown club Sunderland before signing for Everton in 2006. Signing for City eight years later, Scott conceded to being impressed by the professionalism at City Women.
She's no stranger to silverware, having won the Women’s FA Cup in 2010 and the League Cup in 2008, and she hopes to add to that collection during her stay with the club.
