Glasgow City are delighted to announce Nicola Docherty and Leanne Crichton as their first signings for the new season.
19-year-old full back Nicola joins from Rangers and is a key signing for the Scottish Champions.
Docherty has played at all Scottish youth levels and gained her first involvement with the full senior national team this season, when she was picked for the squad to face France last May and earned her debut four months later when she came on as a substitute in the friendly win over Finland.
Leanne Crichton becomes the latest addition for City and is another key player to join their ranks. A strong and gifted player, the 24-year-old midfielder has good experience behind her having played for Celtic and most recently Hibernian.
Speaking of her move, Leanne said: "I am delighted to have signed for Glasgow City. It is an opportunity that I never thought I would get. I am hungry for success and at a stage of my career where I feel ready to take that next step. It's a great team with a great set up and great players. I am excited for the season ahead."
Commenting on the signings, City Head Coach Eddie Wolecki Black added: "I have admired Nicky's ability for a number of years now and I am delighted she has decided to join us. She fits the bill perfectly and has all the ingredients I look for in a Glasgow City player and defender.
"She is still a very young player and supplements our already young and very talented side. I have no doubt we will begin to see the very best of her over the next few seasons and I am thrilled it will be in a Glasgow City shirt. When you have a very good squad of players it is vital that you only make additions that can enhance the team and improve our challenge both at home and in Europe. With Nicky, we have most definitely done this and I look forward to working with her.
"I am delighted to have secured the signature of Leanne, there is no doubt she is a very talented player. Once it was apparent that we needed another midfielder then we very quickly identified Leanne as the main target for this area.
"I don't foresee her having many problems fitting into the team's system and style of play. She has game intelligence, great vision and a range of passing that is without limit. Add the fact that she is brave and wants the ball all the time then this signing is very significant in our development as a team."
