Notts County are delighted to announce the signing of international striker Fiona O'Sullivan.
The Republic of Ireland striker joins from SC Freiburg in Germany, where she scored seven goals in 20 appearances.
After graduating from the University of San Francisco, ending up as captain and leading goalscorer in her senior year, Fiona joined California Storm. O'Sullivan started playing in Europe in July 2010 when she joined Swedish team AIK Fotboll Dam, scoring two goals in seven appearances before joining fellow Swedish side Pitea IF. Whilst at Pitea, O'Sullivan was sent on loan to Kvarnsvedens IK where she netted 12 times in just ten appearances.
From Sweden, Fiona joined French side ASJ Soyaux, scoring four times in nine appearances before she joined her current club SC Freiburg.
O'Sullivan plays her international football for the Republic of Ireland. After making her debut in 2009, the striker has made 25 appearances so far, scoring ten goals, including a hat-trick against Israel in the qualification stages for the 2011 World Cup.
Fiona is excited to join up with her new team, saying: "I'm very excited to be working with Rick (Passmoor), he's a great manager from everything I've heard and I can't wait to get to know the girls and help it to be a successful season.
"I'm hoping to help the team a top finish in the league. I'm coming to Notts to be a creative and dangerous force and I want to be a game changer."
Notts County manager Rick Passmoor is excited to have the striker join his squad: "Fiona has shown what she can do on both a domestic and international level and it's great to be able to welcome her to the club. She gives us great strength in our squad as we head into the second half of the season and the final run in to the league."
Chief Executive Luke Negus-Hill also welcomed O'Sullivan to the team, adding: "I'd like to welcome Fiona into this football club and we hope with the added depth this gives the squad, we are well equipped to challenge in the second half of the season."
