Liverpool FC Women have completed the signing of 29-year-old goalkeeper Rachael Laws who spent the last two years at Reading.

Laws played nine games on loan to the Reds from Sunderland as they secured their first Women’s Super League title in 2013.

“It’s a little bit surreal at the minute,” Laws told Liverpoolfc.com. “Liverpool is where my WSL journey started.

“I’m excited to be back, excited to start my new journey with Liverpool and looking forward to getting back and hopefully getting the club back to where they belong in the WSL.”

“It gives us something to aim for, something to chase. It’s not going to be an easy season, it’s a difficult league to get out of.”

Reds boss Vicky Jepson said of her first signing of the summer transfer window: “She’s got the characteristics we expect from a goalkeeper, to demand and drive our outfield players to retain and build attacks and hopefully keep many clean sheets in the future.”

Laws enjoyed her first training session with her new teammates on Monday as the squad returned to training following the break.
