Glasgow City have signed 21-year-old Republic of Ireland international defender Niamh Farrelly from Peamount United.

Farrelly joins from FAI WNL double-winners Peamount United, following the arrival of full back Cailin Michie from Swedish side Pitea.

Commenting on City’s latest recruit, Head Coach Scott Booth told glasgowcityfc.co.uk, “We are all excited about bringing Niamh to the club. She is a fantastic player who is versatile, athletic and totally focused. She is capped for her country and still young enough to continue her development at Glasgow City.”

Farrelly added, “I am delighted to sign my first professional contract at Glasgow City, a very successful team over the years. I can’t wait to learn from Scott and all the girls and help the team as much as I can.”

Farrelly has signed until the end of season 2023 and her registration will be complete when the transfer window opens on 2 January.
