Chris Huston says: "Jessica is the type of player that can add a spark for us either in the midfield or up front. She is a very creative player with lots of speed which makes her a force to reckon with in the attacking third. Jessica is very dangerous in front of the goal and has an extremely powerful shot. She is definitely not afraid to hit the ball from anywhere on the field."
