Liverpool Ladies sign defender Lucy Bronze from Everton

Liverpool Ladies have signed England youth international Lucy Bronze from Women's Super League rivals Everton.

The 21-year-old is the third player to leave the Blues and cross Merseyside after Fara Williams and Natasha Dowie made the move earlier in November .

The former Sunderland full-back was at Everton for two years and scored two goals last season, one in a 2-1 win over Liverpool in Widnes.

Bronze has played for England at all levels including the under-23's.

The Liverpool revolution has been led by manager Matt Beard, who was appointed in August , with the club looking to end a sequence of two bottom-of-the-table finishes in the WSL in the past two seasons.

Everton changed their manager last week, with Mo Marley stepping down and her assistant Andy Spence taking over , but have now lost three players to their local rivals and England midfielder Jill Scott is considering her future .

However, the Blues are expected to add to their squad and Liverpool are also anticipating more recruits as they look to challenge champions Arsenal for honours and gain a Champions League place in 2013.
