Liverpool Women sign defender Grace Fisk

Liverpool's new signing, Grace Fisk

Liverpool FC Women have signed 25-year-old defender Grace Fisk following her three and a half seasons with West Ham United.

She had previously enjoyed a decorated American collegiate career having emerged from the youth system at Millwall Lionesses.

On the international stage Fisk has been capped by England up to U-21 level and has previously received call ups into the senior squad.

She will team up once again with LFC Women manager Matt Beard and managing director Russ Fraser, both of whom she worked with at the Hammers.

Fisk said: “I’m really happy to be here. I’ve been walking around the city and just getting used to everything. I’m delighted to be here and can’t wait to get going.

“West Ham was my first professional club and is all I’ve known so far really. I’m 25 now and I wanted to make sure my next contract was the right one for me.”

“I’m looking forward to fighting for a place and learning from the girls who are here.”

Matt Beard said: “Grace is a fantastic defender. Reads the game really well, calm and composed, the great thing is she has great vision and great passing range as well.

“Of course, I was lucky to work with her before and it’s been great to see her progress and we’re delighted she’s chosen to come to Liverpool.

“She had a fantastic time in America, going away from home and experiencing something different and then to come back to England and have the career she had at West Ham, hopefully now she can kick on now and get back in the England squad as well.”
