Liverpool have signed experienced defender Gilly Flaherty following her four-year spell as West Ham United captain.

Manager Matt Beard told “The gap from the Championship to the Women’s Super League is getting bigger every year.

“I’ve worked with Gilly before and I followed her career when she was at Arsenal and Chelsea. She’s a fantastic defender, a great person, she’s a leader and I’m looking forward to working with her again.”

Flaherty said: “I know what to expect and that’s why Beardy has brought me here, to give that experience to any players who haven’t had it yet and be a leader alongside the many leaders he’s already got at the club.

“The WSL gets harder every year; it’s going to be tough, but it’s what you want as a professional player.”
