Glasgow City are delighted to announce the signing of Republic of Ireland international Savannah McCarthy from Galway WFC.
The 18 year old central defender and current Republic of Ireland Under 19 Captain, recently progressed into the senior Ireland set up, making the last two A squad international call-ups versus Spain in Euro qualifying and most recently for the double header against the world champions, USA. McCarthy will also be heading to the Cyprus Cup with the Ireland A squad at the start of March.
Commenting on signing for City, McCarthy said, “I would like to thank Glasgow for giving me the opportunity to follow my dreams in becoming a professional footballer. I’m also really looking forward to teaming up with my Ireland team mates Denise O’Sullivan, Ruesha Littlejohn and Claire Shine and can’t wait to meet the rest of the squad. I'm excited to be part of such a successful team and I hope that I can help Glasgow continue that success this coming season.”
Glasgow City Head Coach Scott Booth was not afraid to show his content and patience in capturing the highly rated youngster. He said, “We are delighted to finally be able to sign Savannah. She’s a player that has been on our radar for a number of months. Sav has already proven herself in Ireland and recently fought her way into full national team contention.
“She’s still a teenager but has the potential to be a key player for Glasgow City over the next few years. In the short term she offers us strength in depth along our back line. I am really looking forward to working with her.”
City fans will get to see Savannah and the rest of the Glasgow City team in action against Sunderland for the team’s pre-season challenge match at the Excelsior Stadium, Airdrie, on Sunday 14th February, 2.30pm. Entry is £5 adults and children go FREE.
