Republic of Ireland international goalkeeper Marie Hourihan has returned to Birmingham City Women from SC Braga.

The 33-year-old has agreed terms on a one-year contract to return to the Blues home she played for between 2010 and 2013, helping them to FA Cup success and twice WSL runners-up.

She went on to play for Manchester City and then Brighton & Hove Albion before a spell in Portugal.

Hourihan told“It is great to be back at a club where I had so much success in the past and one that holds so many happy memories for me.

“Once I knew of the interest from here, it was an easy decision. I cannot wait to see the fans again and it will be extra special representing Birmingham at St. Andrew’s.

“I have learnt a lot in my time away and have developed so much as a goalkeeper. I hope to bring all of this with me to Blues and look forward to working with Emily [Ramsey].”
