Welsh international midfielder Hayley Ladd joined Blues Women in September 2017, making her debut in the opening home game of the 2017/18 WSL1 season against Everton.
Ladd's playing days started at Arsenal which included a brief loan spell in Finland before going on to sign for Coventry and then eventually signing for Bristol City Women.
Ladd remained at WSL rivals Bristol City for three seasons before making the move to the West Midlands.
Ladd made her debut for Wales in 2011 and has received regular call ups ever since.
Her first season at Blues Women saw similar success with Ladd named in the starting 11 for all but four games in the 2017/18 season.
