Sheffield United sign striker Mel Johnson ahead of new season

FA Women’s Championship club Sheffield United have announced the signing of striker Mel Johnson ahead of the 2020/21 season. 

She was part of the Aston Villa squad which gained promotion into the Women’s Super League last season and finished as second top scorer in the league with 12 goals.

Sheffield United finished in fifth last season and Johnson will add to the side’s strong attacking line-up of Jade Pennock and Katie Wilkinson, who are the other top goal scorers from last season.

Johnson said: "I'm excited to be a part of this club. I'm around some familiar faces and I want to help build on what the team did last season.

“I'm here to work hard on and off the pitch and give my all to the club every game and I believe this is the best decision and the right place to begin a new journey.”

The Women’s Championship 2020/21 season is set to begin on September 5.
