Glasgow City have announced the arrival of 24 year-old US born striker Miracle Porter from Lithuanian champions FC Gintra.

She graduated from Florida Atlantic University in 2021 after what FAU described as a “sensational senior season”, Porter one of their “most prolific strikers.”

Porter then signed her first professional contract with Stade de Reims, helping them to a seventh place finish.

After her time in France, she moved to Gintra, to gain valuable UEFA Women’s Champions League experience.

The forward, who can play anywhere across the front line, becomes Leanne Ross’s fifth addition to her squad after the arrival of Linda Motlhalo from Djurgärdens, Anna Oscarsson and the promotion to the first team of Lisa Forrest and Sophia Martin from the City Academy.

Miracle Porter said on joining Glasgow City: “I am stoked for this opportunity and can’t wait to see what will happen here at Glasgow City and will look to make the most of it.”

Leanne Ross on her first signing since becoming Interim Head Coach: “It is with pleasure I welcome Miracle Porter to Glasgow City. Her speed, athleticism and creativity will add further quality and competition for places to our already strong and exciting mix of attacking options.

“As well as spending time in the French top flight with Stade de Reims, Miracle also arrives with valuable UWCL experience having played for Lithuanian champions FC Gintra in the competition.

“I believe Miracle's attributes and experience will be a great addition to the team and I look forward to working with her.”

Porter is eligible to be in the squad for Sunday’s Scottish Cup Fifth Round tie against Aberdeen at Petershill Park.
