Kelly Jones is relishing the prospect of competing for silverware after joining Everton Ladies ahead of the 2013 season.

The midfielder joined the Blues from neighbours Liverpool in December along with twin sister Vicky - and she admits they have both received a warm welcome from the squad.

Jones told evertontv: "We've been here a couple of weeks now and the manager (Andy Spence) and the girls have been really welcoming. When we've been training, they've been talking to us both and they're helping us to settle in.

"The last couple of years my and my sister were at Liverpool, where we struggled at the bottom end of the table. There are a lot of really good players here at Everton and hopefully we'll be challenging at the other end."

Both sisters were part of the GB University side that Spence coached to a bronze medal in 2009 - an experience Jones explains helped with her decision to join the Toffees.

She said: "We worked with Andy for a short period of time before and that was definitely a factor in my move. I enjoyed his coaching during that spell and I think it's going to be a similar style. I look forward to working with him and hopefully it'll be exciting.

"It's a new start for us and for Everton with a new manager - that played a big part in us coming here. I think it's an exciting time to be a part of the Club."

Asked what fans could expect from her on the pitch when the new season begins in March, Jones said: "I'm an attacking midfielder. I like to get forward a lot more than I like to defend. I score goals, get in the box and just try to be creative."
