Sue Smith Signs For Lincoln

England winger and forward Sue Smith has signed a contract to play for Lincoln, in the new FA Super League that launches in March 2011.

Smith made her England debut in 1996 and now has 87 caps and 14 goals to her name. In addition to appearing in a League Cup Final, FA Cup Final and FA Premier League Final, Smith has twice been voted Nationwide International Player of the Year and was the sole England representative in the FIFA XI vs USA showpiece match in 1999.

Off the field, Smith can often be seen on TV with regular appearances on the BBC and Sky Sports, and recently worked with Wayne Rooney presenting the player's 'Street Striker' series. She was also one of the first world-class athletes to sign up to Sport England’s Sporting Champions programme.

Manager Rod Wilson, said: “Signing Smith is a tremendous coup for the Club. She’ll be instrumental in shaping our future both on and off the field with her extensive experience and knowledge of football and the set up of the women’s game.

"We are starting to build a very young and exciting squad and Sue will add much needed experience for the forth coming campaign. It is very exciting the City especially as Sue will be visiting schools and clubs in the region on our behalf inspiring young females to follow in her shoes ”

Smith is the third signing for Lincoln Ladies this week, joining her former Leeds Carnegie team mates Jess Clarke and Sophie Bradley.

Neither are workable or likely at present but hypothetically, would you prefer a more strict salary cap in the FA WSL OR should centrally contracted England players (that receive salaries from The FA) be allocated more evenly around WSL1 clubs?
