Karen Walker signs for Leeds
 Women's Football News 22 Jun 2004
 
Karen Walker signs for Leeds - 22 Jun 2004 - Women's Football NewsLeeds United have today confirmed that striker Karen Walker will sign for them from Doncaster Rovers Belles.
 
One of the most prolific goalscorers in women's football, Karen, who retired from international football last year, still holds the record for the most goals scored for the England women's team with 40 goals in 83 appearances. She took the decision to retire from international football after being awarded "Sky Sports International Player of the year 2002-2003".
 
Karen had been at Doncaster Rovers Belles for 19 years, since she was a child. She was their Captain and top scorer for most of her career, including last season where she scored 12 league goals despite missing a couple of months out with injury.
 
Karen commented: "It was a big decision to leave the Belles they have been really good to me, I spoke to friends and family about it but after talking to Leeds about their ambition, seeing the facilities and how the club is run, I knew this was the new challenge that I needed, I wanted a taste of this.
 
"Leeds have some good players and I am looking forward to playing alongside them, I still have a lot of ambition and see this new challenge as just what I need. I think Leeds can challenge this season and I am looking forward to being part of it. Having played under the manager and the coach before at Belles, I know how they work and am looking forward to pre-season training."
 
Leeds United Manager Julie Chipchase added: "I am delighted Karen has decided to join Leeds, she is a quality striker and can score goals at any level. She has consistently been one of the top strikers in the country for a long time and after talking to her, it is clear she still has the desire to work hard and win things.
 
"Karen will bring more experience to our strike force and, with the players we already have, we have competition for places at a high level. I am also sure there will be a few of our younger players who will look up to and learn from her, she is very professional in her approach to the game and has always looked after herself.
 
"I was looking to bring in two or three players this summer to take us to the next level and Karen will help us try to achieve this."
