Lauren James

Biography

The youngest player in the squad, who is eager to make a name for herself.

James joined United from Arsenal, where she became the second-youngest player in the club’s history in October 2017.

A very technical player who is excellent at using her body to shield the ball, she was named the FA Women's Championship Player of the Month for September 2018 after netting three goals in United's opening four matches.

She went on to score 14 times as the Reds were promoted to the top flight at the first time of asking, earning a call-up to the England Under-19 squad for the 2019 UEFA Under-19 Championship in doing so.

A day before her 18th birthday, James made history by scoring our first-ever goal in the Women's Super League, to put us on our way to a 2-0 win over Liverpool.
