Glasgow City sign Fiona Brown from SWPL rivals Celtic



Scottish Womens Premier League champions Glasgow City have announced the signing of Fiona Brown from rivals Celtic.

Brown becomes City’s second signing of the close season following the capture of Ella Stephan last week.

After the announcement, Brown said: “I’m really excited to be joining Glasgow City for next season. I think it’s a great opportunity to develop myself further and establish myself as a player. I’m really looking forward to training with new people and working under a new coach.

“I’ve had four amazing years at Celtic and can’t thank the staff and players enough for everything they’ve done for me. I wouldn’t have had this opportunity without all the effort the club has made and I’ve loved my time there along with my time at Falkirk FC and Stenhousemuir. I’m grateful to have developed as an individual not only on the park but off the park too and to have made friends for life.

“I can’t wait to get started at the club and I’m excited to what the future holds.”

City Head Coach Eddie Wolecki Black added: “I am delighted to have secured the signature of Fiona. Not many people will know that I met with Fiona and her Mother four years ago with the intention of bringing her to the club. At the time we were just getting a youth set-up in place and Fiona made a decision she believed was best for her career at that time. Needless to say I have followed her progress with interest and once I knew she was over her injury she became a priority signing for us. Fiona will add a lot of width to our play, she brings great quality, pace, intensity and a great attitude and I am certain she will flourish in her new environment. I wish her well and look forward to working with her in January.”

Stephan and Brown will not be the last new faces for City as they look to build upon their domestic and european success from this season.
