Jodie Hartley

Defender


A quality signing in 2015 and immediately settled in on the right side of the team with both her defensive tackling skills matched by effective crossing abilities going forward. Jodie is actually a product of the Leeds United Academy having played there until aged 16. Jodie then played at a high level with 15 games for Leeds Ladies in their relegation season in the FA Northern Premier in 2013-14 and ended her Leeds career a year later. Leeds used Jodie more as a tough-tackling holding midfielder so it remains to be seen where United will play her in the future but in any position on the pitch she is a very valuable asset.
