Premier midfielder Emma Kearney will lead the side once again.

Jasmine Garner has been promoted to vice-captain, having missed out on the leadership group entirely in the 2019 season. 

"Jas Garner as vice-captain is a great move for us. She has a really gentle approach to players and works really hard on her game," Kearney said.

"She wasn’t in the leadership group last year and I think she’s really proud of the fact that she’s been chosen, and we’re proud of her as well."
