Kelly Smith adds to WPS credability

England's Striker Kelly Smith

Kelly Smith is set to join the Boston Breakers after saying so long to the Arsenal Ladies. The BBC article covers what you want to know, but I wanted to post an interesting part of the article which talks about a clause put in the contract so to be able to play for England:

Scott, like Smith, is to join Boston while Carney has signed for Chicago Red Stars, Aluko for St Louis Athletica and Asante for the New York and New Jersey team Sky Blue.

All five players are key members of the England squad and with the European Championship finals set for August, their loss is likely to hamper the team’s preparations.

The blow has been softened, however, by clauses in the players’ contracts that will see them released for Euro 2009 build-up matches as well as the tournament itself.

Smith said: “I love playing for England and if that clause had not been in my contract I wouldn’t have signed it.
