Ipswich Town Women have signed experienced midfielder Bonnie Horwood, their second addition of the day from London Bees.
The 34-year-old joins keeper Sarah Quantrill in movong to Suffolk from the Bees.
Horwood began her career at Colchester United, where she spent nine years as a youth player, prior to spells with Fulham, Chelsea and Birmingham City.
A three-year stint with Notts County followed with whom she played during the inaugural Women's Super League season in 2010.
A year with Watford followed before she joined Reading where she was part of the team which won the 2014/15 WSL 2 (second tier) title.
Colchester-based Horwood, who will wear the number 16 shirt, joined Millwall in the summer of 2016 before moving to Yeovil Town two years later.
After one season with the Glovers she moved to London Bees, featuring regularly over the last two years prior to their relegation from the Women’s Championship. She was offered the chance to stay at the Hive for a third season but instead opted to join Town.
Overall, she has made 130 appearances across the Women’s Super League and Championship.
“I'm excited to get started. It's really professionally run so I'm looking forward to it,” Horwood told the club website.
“The team is definitely on the up and that's what you want, really, on and off the pitch.”

I was 12 when we won the FA Cup so saw early success in my early years as a Town fan. How spoilt I was to see Beattie, Wark, Muhren Thijssen et al.
Building a High Performance Team at ITFC by Jaime_Clapham
Change is hard. Building a team is hard. Just reflect on what it’s like within the organisations that you work in, or when you are kicking off a new project. A football club and team are no different.
Marathon Blues by wadey
As some of you may be aware, we lost our little boy Tyler on 1st April 2012, aged just 15 months old. There was no cause declared and he just passed away in his sleep. Since then, I’ve tried to raise as much money for charity in memory of him.
Accentuate the Positive, Eliminate the Negative and Don’t Mess with Mr Inbetween by dusth
Tracking through the forums and reading the comments on TWTD is a weird rollercoaster these days, more extremely polarised and more vitriolic than I can remember. We’ve never fallen so far and regretted it so much.
