Following our previous update from two weeks ago, today’s (Wednesday’s) friendly against FC Bayern allowed us to note numerous squad number changes for the new Ladies’ squad.
Sari Van Veenendaal gets the number 1 shirt following Emma Byrne’s departure leaving number 13 behind.
Leah Williamson gets number 6, a centreback number previously owned by Vicky Losada and leaves 14 behind.
Chloe Kelly gets number 7, previously Natalia Sanchon’s property and leaves 25 behind.
Kim Little gets the number 10 previously owned by Kelly Smith.
Carla Humphrey, coming back from her loan spell at Donnie Belles, gets the number 11 previously owned by Rachel Yankey; she used to wear 16 before going on loan.
Rachel Laws, who is training with the club at the moment, would get number 13, should she sign up later.
Anna Patten, who has come up from the u17 team in September and plays for the Development team, has been given the number 32.
Among the numbers still available are 5, 13, 14, 16, 22 and 25.
Should any defender sign, you would expect her to grab number 5. Rachel Laws would get number 13 obviously.
Arsenal.com and Arsenalladies.com hopefully will be updated soon to reflect those changes.
