Glasgow City Get Gunner On Loan

Republic of Ireland international forward Katie McCabe joins SWPL reigning champions Glasgow City for the second half of the season.

Glasgow City Head Coach, Scott Booth commented on the club’s website, “Katie is a player who has been on our radar for some time now and we are delighted that we can finally bring her to Glasgow City. Her technical ability, pace and vision will threaten any defence. We have some really competitive games to play in the 2nd half of the season and a player of her quality can be a match winner when things get tight. I would like to also thank Arsenal for helping to make this happen.”

21 year old Katie, who is no stranger to a number of the City players with three Irish internationals already in the Glasgow camp said, “I’m really excited to be joining Glasgow City on a loan move. It’s a great opportunity for me to work with such a successful women’s club and one with a great history. I’m really looking forward to the rest of the season and I can’t wait to help the team try and win even more trophies.”

City resume their campaign away at Stirling University on 30th August and sit second in the SWPL 1 table, two points behind Hibernian, over whom they have a game in hand.
