Everton have confirmed that Annie Wilding and Eleanor Dale will both leave the club when their contracts expire at the end of this month.

Annie Wilding, a 20-year-old academy graduate, has been with the Toffees since the age of twelve. The defender made her professional debut in December 2022, starting against Durham in the Continental League Cup.

Last season, Wilding played five matches, including Everton’s final day 4-0 win over Bristol City.

Striker Eleanor Dale, 22, joined Everton in February of this year on a short-term contract.

Her first appearance was against Nottingham Forest in the Women’s FA Cup, and she went on to feature six times in the Women’s Super League.

The club issued a statement saying, “Everyone at Everton thanks Annie and Eleanor for their commitment to the club and wishes both players the very best for the future.”
