Record scorer rejoins City
 Women's Football News 12 Oct 2012
Record scorer rejoins City - 12 Oct 2012 - Women's Football NewsGlasgow City are delighted to announce that they have captured the signature of former player and the club's record all-time top goalscorer Suzanne Lappin. 
Sue left City two years ago after having spent eight seasons with the club and was recruited to the English semi-professional Super League spending her first year with Liverpool and her second season with Chelsea.
Having scored 170 competitive goals in 199 starts, the attacking midfielder is now back at the club where she matured in the senior game, much to the delight of City Head Coach Eddie Wolecki Black.
He said: "I am delighted to welcome Sue back to Glasgow City. There is no doubt that she has been a very influential player for this club. It is an unusual situation in that we are getting back a player in her peak years of her football career. I think the record books speak for themselves, with her goals to starts ratio. She not only brings a goal threat to the team, but her vision and awareness of team mates is exceptional. She has matured as a player over the past two seasons and she has seen the different philosophies of other clubs.
"I believe this will help her settle very quickly at the club and it's no secret she has continued to train with us throughout her time away. It is my opinion that a fit Suzanne Lappin is one of the best players this country has ever produced. I would like to wish her all the best upon her return. She has suffered a great loss in her time away and we will all share her joy if we can see a smile return to her face again."
Commenting on her decision to re-join Glasgow City, Sue said: "Being back at City just feels like coming back home. This club has and always will mean everything to me....I started here as a 16-year-old girl and left when I was 23. It has been very hard to watch from the outside as the team has played in high prestige Champions League games and not be part of that. I would be lying if I said otherwise and anyone who knows me knows that was the case.
"I don't regret leaving at all though as Liverpool and Chelsea have gave me great experience of playing in a different country and have tested not only my football ability but my character as a person but I am finally glad to be back home.
"I am desperate to get back into training four nights a week with my club team as two years away from that philosophy has been difficult to cope with. Training at City is so high tempo and intense, although I am sure it will take me a couple of weeks to get used to this again! I have remained in contact with Eddie throughout my two years away from the club and he knows where I am at right now and how keen I am to get back into the shape and form that I was in when I left the club and I have no doubt that he will help me achieve that.
"Most of the girls at the club are not only my team mates but friends and I hope that I can help continue the success that they have been building over the last few years. Although Leanne Ross might not be my friend anymore since I am back to stop her stealing my record goalscorer accolade!!
"I just want to thank the players and staff for welcoming me back and I can't wait to get going again.....Once City...Always City."
