Newcastle United Women sign Championship Golden Glove winner

Newcastle United's new signing, Claudia Moan

Newcastle United sign Barclays Women’s Championship Golden Glove winner and Sunderland Player of the Season Claudia Moan.

The 25-year-old goalkeeper kept ten clean sheets as Sunderland finished third in a very tight promotion race last season, earning league and club awards for her efforts.

Moan told “I am delighted to be joining Newcastle United, who have shown in the past two seasons that they are a very ambitious club.

“The set-up at the club is fantastic which is something I know will help me settle in very quickly.

“I will give everything I possibly can to the team and the fans, who I know give incredible support to the club. I can’t wait to get started next week.”

Manager Becky Langley added: “Claudia is a top goalkeeper and I worked with her previously when we won the league together at Northumbria University.

“Her stats from last season speak for themselves. The fact she won the Golden Glove and Player of the Season awards is absolutely fantastic when you look at the quality of players she was up against in that league. We’re really excited to see her join the club.”
