Impressive effort compiling that list!  It's much appreciated.

I watched Fletcher go head-to-head with Fleming last year in a college game, and she impressed me.  I'm glad to see she's continuing to play somewhere.

[ 1 ]  Not entirely certain, but it looks like Pilar Khoury has returned to ASPTT Albi which would give us seven ! Canadians in D1F: Buchanan ( OL ) , Lawrence ( PSG ) Richard ( OM ) , Alidou-D'Anjou ( OM ), Lambert ( Albi ), Khoury ( Albi ) and Roy-Peticlerc ( Albi )

[ 2 ]  I was also pleased to see that both Valerie Sanderson and Marie-Yasmine Alidou-D'anjou have both scored early goals for their respective clubs.

Couldn't find confirmation that Khoury was still at Albi. That's why I didn't mention her because I remember looking if she was still there, but she didn't play the friendly at Barcelona and didn't make the 18 for their 2 league matches this season.

Beard gave his two new signings, Adriana Leon and Cho So-hyun, their first minutes in a West Ham shirt against City. Leon started Sunday's fixture while Cho was introduced in the second period. 

Both the Canadian and the South Korean gave a good account of themselves and the Irons boss was delighted with how the duo performed on their respective debuts.

He continued: "We threw Dri in at the deep end. Ideally we would have brought her off the bench. But I've worked with her before and she's worked with me, and she understands what I want from a player in that position. I thought she equipped herself really well today. She hasn't played for two months but I think she did really well."
