Humphrey has been with the club for two seasons, with the former Arsenal academy graduate having joined from Bristol City when the Reds were in the Women’s Championship.
Roberts has spent five years on Merseyside, with the Wales international experiencing the highs and lows of being relegated and promoted. Robe, meanwhile, joined at the same time as her teammate, moving from Millwall in 2018 and featuring regularly for most of her time at the club.
Campbell had been at Manchester City for five years before she swapped the WSL for the Championship. The Irish defender was a key figure in helping Liverpool to promotion last campaign. Clarke has been out on loan at West Brom and the keeper was not part of Matt Beard’s first-team plans.
The most poignant departure of the six
After coming through the Reds’ youth system, and spending nine years as a senior player at Liverpool, Ash Hodson’s exit from the club is undoubtedly the most significant.
The midfielder was out on loan at Birmingham City this season, so her departure was expected but it will be a wrench for the player to leave nonetheless.
