Forest Ladies sign WSL player ahead of SSE Women’s FA Cup Game
Nottingham Forest LFC have made some enhancements to their senior squad and are strengthening off the field too.
Forest Ladies sign WSL player ahead of SSE Women’s FA Cup GameIn addition to Rebecca Kemp from Leicester City Women and Kirsty Richardson – a former Sheffield FC player, Forest now welcome back Lyndsey Cunningham, signed from WSL side Doncaster Belles to enhance their senior Squad.
Lyndsey started her footballing career with Forest Ladies under 10s and progressed through the junior age groups until she played for Forest’s 1st Team some 11 years later.  A club favourite due to her commitment, ability and also her great personality it was with a sense of pride that Lyndsey progressed to play in the WSL with Doncaster Belles.
Whilst at Forest, Lyndsey earnt her England experience and was selected for the Under 17s and Under 20s.  She has flourished by playing at the WSL level but has now chosen a different opportunity that helps with her own personal commitments. Cunningham was quick to respond to Forest’s approach via Doncaster Belles to take discussions further.  After attending training sessions and meetings with Forest’s Head Coach (Steve Stennett) and Chairperson (P.J Andrews) Lyndsey put pen to paper and has been a great impact to the squad already.
Steve Stennett has been pivotal in the recruitment of Cunningham and says: “I cannot speak highly enough of Lyndsey, a player I have admired for many years since watching her play for NFLFC, her selection at International level and playing in the WSL with Doncaster Belles - so to be able to sign her for NFLFC is a real highlight for me as Head Coach of the 1st Team.

“Lyndsey is a terrific addition to the team and brings with her a wealth of footballing knowledge and experience which will undoubtedly rub off on our young talented players as well as her re-acquainting with some of our senior players that she knows well.  I now look forward to getting her out on the grass doing what she does best. Welcome home Lyndsey - No pressure!”
Cunningham is really pleased to be back and said:  “I had a fantastic time at Doncaster Belles and I really wish them well in in the top tier.  Coming back to Forest I spoke with Steve Stennett and the Chairperson at the training sessions and everyone was welcoming.   The training has been really good and enjoyable and the squad are great - It’s just great to be back where it all began.”

Club Chairperson, PJ Andrews adds:  “Everyone at NFLFC is working really hard on and off the pitch to ensure we can deliver our best results to the season end.  This is for all 11 teams.  For the 1st Team Steve Stennett has continued from his excellent work at the end of last season to pull together and work with a great senior squad with the help of his coaching staff.  We recently adjusted our organisation to relinquish Steve’s role as Technical Director of Football so he can now fully focus on the coaching and management of the 1st Team and the past two weeks has particularly benefited with signings in players and also in coaching staff alongside his renowned quality delivery of coaching.

Whilst we are still looking to enhance capable resource with further coaching staff for the club across some age groups, our target for the 1st Team was to retain FAWPL status and the players have responded well to the challenge
so far.  Without doubt the second half of the season looks to be tough on paper with games against sides in the top half of the table, but Steve and the players are all up for it and we only ask for their best efforts.”
“We know Lyndsey well from her time as a junior player upwards and she will be a great asset to the squad, we welcome her and all the new players as well as continuing to appreciate the existing squad members.”
