Alex Greenwood and Nikita Parris have both signed their first senior contracts with Everton Ladies.
 
The Blues duo came through the Club's Centre of Excellence system and have worked their way into Mo Marley's first team squad ahead of the new WSL season.

Defender Greenwood has been with Everton since just eight years of age, whilst forward Parris joined the Toffees aged 12.
 
Both players have been part of the successful reserve side for the past two seasons and have each represented England at Under-15s, Under-17s and Under-19s level.
 
Manager Marley declared her joy as the duo put pen to paper.
 
She said: "We are all delighted that we have signed Alex and Nikita on their first contracts.
 
"They are excellent role models for current Centre of Excellence players and prove that with dedication and real focus the transition can be achieved from youth levels into senior football.
 
"Both have made rapid progress through their age groups and have been instrumental in helping the reserves win the League over the past two seasons.
 
Alongside this they have had the experience of being regular England youth internationals, competing and training at the highest level.
 
"Their inclusion will strengthen our squad for this new season with the individual qualities that they posess."
