Kayleigh Hines has rejoined Oxford United Women.

The 28-year-old has agreed to re-sign for Liam Gilbert’s side after a 16-month spell out through injury.

The influential midfielder initally joined the U’s in 2013, before moving to Reading in 2015.

But she is now out to prove a point back at United.

“It was a lot of months of rehab, but I am delighted to be back on the football pitch,” she said.

“I touched base with Liam Gilbert over the course of the rehab and it would always be a place I wanted to come back to. I’m delighted.”

United have also been handed their FA Women's National League fixtures for the Southern Premier Division.
