Her place in the Wales team has long been cemented, and Angharad James will again play FA Women's Super League football next season after signing for Reading.

The international midfielder has signed a contract with the Royals after leaving Everton this summer.

James began her career at Arsenal, joining the Gunners’ Academy in 2010 at the age of 16 and has since played for Bristol Academy, Notts County, Yeovil Town and the Toffees.

In the meantime, she has racked up 74 caps for Wales and at the age of 25, is set to go well past the three figure mark.

“Reading is a club that I have always had respect for,” Angharad said.

“This is a step forward in my career and one which I am very much looking forward to.

“I’m excited to work with Kelly (Chambers), her staff and a high calibre of players in this squad - it will be a great opportunity to learn and grow as a player and as person.

“This move was about going to a club who would challenge me and take my game to the next level. Reading fitted that mould and more. Great things never came from comfort zones - I can’t wait to get started with this new challenge.”

James, from Llandysilio, started out in football with the Manorbier Girls' team.
