DREW SPENCE is looking to bring a title-winning attitude to Tottenham after leaving Chelsea as a free agent.  

The former Kingsmeadow ace joins Spurs – who finished fifth in the WSL last term – on a two-year deal.

And the contract includes an option for the Jamaica international to extend her Tottenham career for another year.

The move sees Spence become the first summer signing for Rehanne Skinner’s team, who have aspirations to finish in the league’s top three.

And her transfer comes after a 14-year spell as Chelsea’s longest-serving player, a club with whom she won ten trophies – including five league titles.

Spence said: “It’s a new chapter for me. I’ve seen how much the team has progressed over the past few seasons, challenging teams at the top.

“It’s the right move and somewhere where I can bring all my experience.

“I know how to win titles. I know what it’s like to be in a dressing room where there is a winning mentality every day.

“Hopefully that’s something I can bring here.”

Last season Spence helped Chelsea to claim a third successive WSL crown as well as their fourth Women’s FA Cup.


The London-born WSL veteran, who scored 50 times in 238 Blues games, earned her first international cap for Jamaica last October.

And she helped the Reggae Girls to qualify for next month’s Concacaf tournament with World Cup spots up for grabs for the four best sides.

Tottenham chief Rehanne Skinner said: “Drew is a fantastic addition to the squad we are building.

“Her WSL achievements are significant with her having been involved in the league since the start in 2011.

“She brings a huge amount of experience and understanding of winning, having been a part of 11 trophy-winning teams.

“As a midfielder, Drew is creative, tenacious and capable of unlocking defences in a number of ways, and will be an asset for us.”
