Katie Startup

Startup became the first signing of the summer transfer window in 2020, when she joined from Championship side Charlton Athletic on a two-year contract.

The 21-year-old was a regular for the Addicks during her three years there, going on to play for England at Under-19 level.

Towards the end of her time at The Valley, Startup started wearing the number 40 shirt - to raise awareness for mental health charities, with on average somebody committing suicide around the world every 40 seconds.
