The Canadian, formerly of Frauen Bundesliga club Turbine Potsdam, arrived at Princes Park ahead of the transfer deadline and is available for selection this weekend.

“England is such a growing environment for women's football and it felt like a really exciting opportunity when I spoke with the coaches about the project they are working on here,” said Culver.

“I'm a big communicator, which is one of my strong suits. I like to lead on the field because I'm able to see the whole pitch as a centre-back. I like to distribute possession, so hopefully that's something I can bring that will help contribute to the success of the team."

The 26-year-old has amassed a wealth of professional experience across top division spells in Italy, France, and Germany.

Oakville-born Culver played four seasons in the NCAA with Kent State University, for whom she emerged as a defensive mainstay and made 80 appearances.

Transfers to Pink Bari (Italian Serie A), ASJ Soyaux, Girondins Bordeaux (French D1), IFK Kalmar (Swedish Damallsvenskan), and Turbine Potsdam (Frauen Bundesliga) followed for the talented defender, who is excited for her first experience in England.

“I've dipped my hand into a lot of different leagues, which has been great,” she explained.

“You learn a lot while moving around different countries, so I'm excited to be here, settle in, and bring my experience from those leagues to help the team and prove myself here.

Head Coach Carolina Morace added: “Paige has a lot of experience and has played professionally in many countries around Europe.

"We needed an expert player to join us at centre-back and I think she will help us a lot because it is a long season and it is also important to have many players who are comfortable in her position.

"The centre-back position has changed the most in the last decade, with how how many passes those are players to expected to complete. She's tall, and we like that, and we are confident she will fit into our style of play."


With Paige set to make her home debut versus Charlton Athletic on Sunday 1 October, now is the perfect time to secure your spot at Princes Park.
