Everton Ladies have signed Northern Ireland internationals Simone Magill and Julie Nelson.

Striker Magill, 18, has arrived from Mid-Ulster Ladies and defender Nelson, 28, recently played in Iceland for IVB.

Everton boss Andy Spence said: "I am delighted to welcome Julie and Simone. They bring a perfect mixture of youth and experience to the squad."

The Toffees have also signed 18-year-old goalkeeper Lizzie Durack, who grew up in Australia.

All three players could be involved when Everton face Liverpool in the season-opening Continental Cup game at Halton Stadium on Saturday evening.
