Top-four target for Lincoln's Bardsley
- From the section Football
England goalkeeper Karen Bardsley is targeting at least a top-four finish for her new club Lincoln Ladies in her first season in the Women's Super League.
The American-born stopper joined Lincoln, who finished fifth in the WSL last year, from Swedish club Linköpings FC in November.
Bardsley says the main reason she moved to the club is to play regularly with England defenders Casey Stoney and Sophie Bradley and she is also looking forward to working with new coach Rick Passmoor who she says brings "energy and discipline" to the team.
