A dream transfer for Maltese defender Megan Jones, as she embarked in the WSL 2 after Millwall Lionesses managed to obtain her services from Yeovil Town Ladies.

Jones has been immediately called-up for the Lionesses' tie against Durham Women, in a bid to end their season as best as they can. Currently, the Lionesses are second bottom on 11 points; two behind Oxford United Women, but with a game in hand.

The team from London was in search of a defender, who could give them stability and composure at the back. They identified Jones as the right acquisition in order to help them reach their ultimate target.

A promising talent

Megan Jones kicked her first ball at Hampshire Girls' Centre of Excellence and it was there, where Yeovil spotted her and brought her to their team, in order to help her maximise her potential.

She was a key figure in their development squad, where she played every 90 minutes of last season and was also named as one of the best players according to the managers across the Development League.

The senior team did not overlook her performances and in fact, she was called up to train with the first team, with whom she also featured in various friendlies.

Burch pleased to bring her in

The Lionesses' manager Lee Burch, who has been recently appointed to guide the team, was keen to make Jones his first signing. Although it was not a straightforward decision for Jones to leave Yeovil, the team who helped her to fulfill her talent, she was delighted to sign for Millwall Lionesses, becoming Burch's first signing at the helm.

In his first statement during her presentation, Burch underlined the fact the had already worked with her in the past and is very pleased that the club put on a great effort in order to satisfy his wish of bringing her at The Den. 

Jones is also part of the Maltese national team, with whom she has already featured at under-16 and under-19 level.

In addition, she has already featured with the senior team in various training sessions, having been part of the under-19 squad who was invited to train with the senior team during last season, under the guidance of coach Mark Gatt.
