Sadler names new skipper

11 August 2023

Portsmouth FC Women are delighted to announce that Hannah Haughton has been named as club captain.

She takes the armband alongside Ava Rowbotham, who becomes vice-captain.

And Haughton makes the step up following the departure of Danielle Rowe at the end of the 2022/23 campaign.

"She gets what this club is about, having spent the past four years here. She is a popular member of the dressing room who sets high standards and expectations of herself."

Jay Sadler

Blues boss Jay Sadler said: "Han has demonstrated that she is ready to take on the captaincy through her performances on the pitch, combined with her attitude and application in training.

"She gets what this club is about, having spent the past four years here. She is a popular member of the dressing room who sets high standards and expectations of herself.

"Ava is a respected senior member of the squad, she holds high standards of herself and others. I feel she will provide the necessary support in the role of vice-captain."

"Hand on heart, to be captain of this team is the best thing that has ever happened to me and I can’t wait to get the season started."

Hannah Haughton

Haughton added: "I am completely honoured and full of pride to be named captain of this team, and in fact I can’t find the right words to sum up the feeling.

"This team is more than a team to me, it’s a family and I promise that I will always give and do my best on and off the pitch for this club and lead by example.

"This is what dreams are made of, not only playing with this group, but to lead them.

"Hand on heart, to be captain of this team is the best thing that has ever happened to me, and I can’t wait to get the season started."

"I’m thrilled to help lead this team forward into an exciting season alongside Hannah."

Ava Rowbotham

Rowbotham said: "It’s a huge honour to become vice-captain of this football club and I'm really grateful to Jay for the opportunity.

"It’s a positive step in my football career and I’m thrilled to help lead this team forward into an exciting season alongside Hannah."
