Emma Hayes' first match in charge of the Blues ended with a 1-0 victory over Doncaster Rovers Belles, and as well as a new manager, we have also signed a new striker, one that has proven herself on the world stage...
Spain skipper signs
It's not just the men's team who have been busy in the transfer market of late, with the Chelsea Ladies bolstering the squad with the addition of Spain striker Adriana Martin.
Martin, who captains her national side, most recently played in America, and has also represented Atletico Madrid and Barcelona.
Up to now, she has enjoyed a successful career, winning three Spanish league titles and two national cups, as well as finishing as top scorer in Spain in both 2007 and 2010.
Martin wears the number nine shirt for her country, and she was welcomed to the club at Cobham by her male equivalent, Fernando Torres.
'I feel so good; when you think of Chelsea, you think of one of the best clubs in Europe, so I'm really happy to be here,' a visibly delighted Martin tells the official Chelsea website.
'My first option, when I came back to Spain after playing in America for a year, was to re-sign for Atletico, who I'd played for before I left the country, but when Chelsea called I couldn't say no. It's a great team and this is a fantastic opportunity, so I'm very happy.
'He [Torres] is a great man, I've met him with the national team before when we trained at the same place, but only to say hello and goodbye. Torres is a fantastic player and it was lovely to speak with him. He scored against Reading, and when he scores he's happy.'
Martin made her Chelsea debut in last weekend's 1-0 win against Doncaster Rovers Belles, where a late Laura Coombs strike was enough to secure all three points
The appeal of women's football, according to recent research carried out by the FA WSL, is growing, and it's thanks in no small part to the London Olympics.
Much of the talk in the years leading up to the games was of creating a legacy, and it appears that the performances of our athletes, including the Team GB women's football team - which included Chelsea duo Claire Rafferty and Dunia Susi - has sparked a surge in interest in the sport.
Almost 70 per cent of the 1,000 people asked said they would consider going to watch a women's football match, while a staggering 95 per cent believe that female footballers make positive role models for teenage girls.
Presenting competition for youngsters
The FA WSL and sports broadcaster ESPN have teamed up for a new initiative named 'Search for a Star', which is designed to find the next generation's sports TV presenter.
The competition, aimed at youngsters from the ages of 12 to 16-years-old, will be judged by an elite panel, which includes ESPN football presenter Rebecca Lowe, with the winner receiving the opportunity to write and present their own report for ESPN.
Entrants are asked to upload an original, single-camera, 60-second video report on a recent sporting event to their own You Tube account, and send the URL to the official teen media partner Shout magazine at firstname.lastname@example.org.
