Lincoln Ladies re-sign Jess Clarke and Sophie Bradley

Lincoln Ladies have re-signed England internationals Sophie Bradley and Jess Clarke on one-year contracts with an option for a second year.

Centre-half Bradley and winger Clarke both joined the Lady Imps in August 2010 ahead of the inaugural FA Womens Super League  season.

"To have tied up two key contracts so early is fantastic news," said chief executive Luke Negus-Hill.

Lincoln Ladies finished fifth in the Womens Super League last season.

Following an internal review by the club into their performance over the season manager Glen Harris was relieved of his first-team duties.
