“She is someone I know well from my time at Forest Green; she is currently the captain and possesses natural leadership abilities.

“She has a fantastic attitude and is a very nice person; she will fit right in with the team.

“She has played Division 1 soccer in the United States, so she has tremendous pedigree. She played exciting football, and she will bring increased competitiveness in the group, which is good.

“She has good experience, and I think it would be vital for us that she can bring her leadership qualities to the team as well.

“She has a fantastic track record of scoring goals from midfield, so it’s great to have another player who can help us in that area.

“I’m just really looking forward to Hattie being involved with the team.

Jones remarked after signing for Swindon: “As Forest Green’s captain, it was a significant step to go and look at

another team.

“I was fairly confident in my skills there; perhaps, some of the goals I scored there can be replicated here and have a beneficial influence.

“Rich was the assistant manager (at Forest Green Rovers), so we worked very closely for a year and a half and got

along incredibly well; I appreciate the type of coach he is. I look forward to working with him again.”
