New Zealand full-back Anna Green, 26, has signed a full-time professional contract with Reading Women until June 2018. The left sided defender has played over 60 times for New Zealand, scoring 7 goals.

Green has represented the Football Ferns at two senior World Cups (Germany 2011 & Canada 2015) and two U20’s World Cups. The 26 year old has also been part of three Olympic squads; Beijing 2008, London 2012 & Brazil 2016.

On signing for the Royals Green said “I’ve only heard good things about Reading and the professional environment you guys have here. It’s tough to come up from WSL2 and to stay up here [in WSL1] is a massive achievement, so I’m excited to be involved with a club that’s capable of doing this”

Kelly Chambers: “Anna is a great attacking player and a great athlete. She has great attributes that give us a different dimension to our team on the pitch. I can't wait to introduce her to the team and get working with her”.
