City on Bardsley:

England goalkeeper Karen Bardsley joined City in November 2013.

The 5' 11" in goalkeeper brought hoards of experience to the new-look City side, kicking off her professional career at Ajax America Women before moving to Pali Blues in 2008. The following year, she signed for Sky Blue FC, making 17 appearances.

August 2011 brought another change as Bardsley signed for Swedish club Linköpings FC. She stayed only a year at the club before signing for Lincoln Ladies in 2012.

The shot-stopper then signed a two year deal at City with high hopes from the outset. Eligible for the England national team through family connections to Stockport, Bardsley has made 40 appearances for England. She made her debut in 2005, and also went on to pick up five caps for Great Britain at the London Olympics.

Having patiently served as understudy to Rachel Brown, Bardsley has retained her place ever since she broke into the England set-up, playing all four matches at the World Cup in 2011.

One of the best women's goalkeepers in the game, she played a pivotal role in the 2014 Continental Cup-winning campaign, producing a number of spectacular saves on City's road to success.
