Svitková signing another huge boost to West Ham

WEST HAM UNITED have again posted a statement of intent ahead of the new FA Women’s Super League campaign by announcing the signing of experienced Czech international, Kateřina Svitková, from Slavia Prague.

The 24-year-old attacking midfielder arrives in East London having been named the Czech Footballer of the Year on three occasions as well as lifting five league titles and two cups during a profitable seven years with her homeland club.

The Plzeň-born player made her international debut for the Czech Republic at the age of seventeen and has since gone on to make 31 appearances, finding the net on 17 occasions.

On linking up with the Hammers, Svitková enthused: “I’m very excited to join West Ham.

“It’s a very big club, with a big history and in a very nice city. I hope I can help the club to achieve their goals and I hope we will be successful.”

West Ham Head coach, Matt Beard, was clearly delighted to add Svitková to his ever-improving squad, adding: “I’m really excited to work with Katerina.

“She is a player I’ve been tracking for some time now and her record at Slavia Prague and at international level speaks for itself.

“She proved herself a key player for club and country from a young age and, from my perspective, she’s going to be a great addition to our team. She creates and scores goals, and she’s got a fantastic work ethic. I’m really excited to see what she brings to the table for us.”
