Stoke City Women’s stalwart Tash Tezgel has left the club after ten years.
The central midfielder confirmed her departure with a statement on twitter, she said; “It is incredibly difficult to say goodbye to something I’ve known for 10 years,
“I’ve become a better person and player throughout my time at Stoke City Women”.
Tezgel joined Stoke from Bradwell Belles and during her time with the Potters she helped them rise to the third tier of the women’s game.
She was also part of the squad that in 2012-13 achieved triple success with promotion to the Premier League, County Cup and League Cup.
Tezgel was popular with both her team-mates and supporters and thanked them both in her statement, she said; “Thank you for allowing me to share a changing room with some of the most talented players I’ve had a pleasure of playing with.
“My biggest thank you is to all the supporters, new and old, you really have no idea how your support can really make the difference in games, you made and will continue to make Norton a place the girls will love to play”.
Stoke have had a good start to their season winning six of their opening nine fixtures and currently sit second in the FA Women’s National League Northern Premier Division.
