Glasgow City sign Republic of Ireland international Abbie Larkin

Glasgow City's new signing, Abbie Larkin

Glasgow City have signed 18-year-old Republic of Ireland international Abbie Larkin from Shamrock Rovers on transfer deadline day.

Larkin helped League of Ireland Women’s Premier League side Shelbourne to the double in 2022, before moving to Shamrock Rovers at the start of the year.

On the international stage Larkin made her senior debut at only 16 years of age and this summer was selected for the Republic of Ireland’s World Cup squad.

She came off the bench in all three group games and became the youngest Irish player ever to play at a World Cup.

Abbie Larkin on signing for the club: “I’m delighted to be signing for Glasgow City FC. I’m excited to get started and I am looking forward to this next step of my career.”

Head Coach Leanne Ross on the signing: “I am delighted to have secured the signing of Abbie Larkin on transfer deadline day. With a long, tough season still ahead, it was important to strengthen the attacking options within the squad, so to bring in a player of Abbie’s quality and experience is a huge coup.

“Although just 18 years of age, Abbie has already played in the Champions League and represented the Republic of Ireland at the World Cup Finals this summer, achievements which highlight the calibre of player she is.

“Abbie is a technically gifted, creative player with an eye for goal. She can play attacking midfield or forward positions and will certainly add to the attacking threat posed by the team with her ability to assist and score goals.”
