“I am very pleased with the signing of Carly Telford,” said Wave FC head coach Casey Stoney in a statement. “I know Carly well and know exactly what she will bring both on the pitch and in our environment. She is a talented, experienced international that will add real strength to our goalkeeping unit. I am looking forward to working with Carly to see what we can achieve together.”
Telford was part of the WSL and Continental League Cup winning Chelsea FC side, for the 2020/2021 season. Internationally, she has been selected for three World Cup rosters for England, and had a standout performance for the Three Lions in their 2019 SheBelieves Cup triumph.
Telford will no doubt have an opportunity to win the number one spot, as she not only brings domestic experience, having played in one of the top leagues in the world, but also tons of International experience. This is a very welcome addition for the team as they continue to build out their roster ahead of their inaugural campaign.
