Just one new cap in Football Ferns squad

11:30 am on 15 February 2013

The New Zealand women's football coach Tony Readings has named just one new cap in his 21-strong squad for next month's Cyprus Cup.

Waikato-based striker Helen Collins is the only new player to the Ferns environment, although goalkeeper Erin Nayler is also uncapped at senior international level.

Injury has ruled out incumbent keeper Jenny Bindon giving former cricket international and 16-cap Fern Rebecca Rolls and Junior Football Ferns number one Nayler an opportunity for time on the field at international level.

The Football Ferns have been drawn in a group with England, Italy and Scotland for the 2013 Cyprus Cup to be held from March the 6th on the European island.
