Natasha Dowie rejoins Liverpool Women on loan from Reading

Liverpool sign Natasha Dowie on loan from Reading

Liverpool sign Natasha Dowie on loan from Reading, the striker returning to the Reds for a second spell until the end of the season.

She previously enjoyed a hugely successful three seasons with the club under current manager Matt Beard from 2013 to 2015.

That period brought the club two Women’s Super League titles and Dowie was WSL top scorer and FA Players’ Player of the Year in the first triumph.

Matt Beard said: “I think the biggest thing for us is that Tats is a goal scorer. If you look at her record, it’s consistently a goal every other game throughout her career.

“When the opportunity arose to bring her in – the fact she’s a Liverpool fan as well – we felt it was a good move for us and a good move for her.”

Dowie said: “It’s been a surreal last couple of days, it all happened quite quick.

“But I’m over the moon to be back, this is my home, this is where I’ve got such great memories, the best memories really of my football career winning the league here.

“I’m just really excited for the next four months, on loan from Reading but just really want to help Liverpool get up the table as much as I can, however much I can be involved.”

“I’ve obviously travelled, played in six or seven different countries and won things. I’ve worked with Beardy before and he’s someone who knows how to get the best out of me.”
