Profile

Everton Ladies completed the signing of Doncaster Rovers Belles striker Courtney Sweetman-Kirk in September 2017.

She arrived at the Blue Girls for an undisclosed fee on deadline day ahead of the 2017/18 season.

Formerly of Leicester City and Coventry City, Sweetman-Kirk was part of the Lincoln side that became Notts County in 2014.

She moved to Doncaster later that year and struck 25 goals as the Belles clinched promotion to WSL 1, gaining personal recognition when awarded the WSL 2 Players’ Player of the Year award.

Sweetman-Kirk was also top scorer in the 2017 Spring Series with nine goals, just pipping Everton striker Claudia Walker’s tally of seven. Those included two in the 3-3 draw against the Blue Girls at the Keepmoat Stadium.

Despite the interest of several WSL 1 clubs, she moved to the Toffees, signing a two-year deal.

An ever-present in her first season at the Club, Sweetman-Kirk ended the campaign as Everton's top scorer with nine goals, having opened her account against Birmingham City in the Continental Cup.

Three of those came against Durham in the FA Women’s Cup quarter-final, the striker’s first career treble.

The striker was on the move again at the end of the campaign, moving across the city to Liverpool for an undisclosed fee.
