Glasgow City sign Julie Fleeting
 Women's Football News 19 Mar 2015
 
Glasgow City sign Julie Fleeting - 19 Mar 2015 - Women's Football NewsGlasgow City are excited to announce that Scottish striking legend Julie Fleeting has signed for the club. 
 
Arguably Scotland's highest profile female footballer of her generation, Fleeting became the first ever Scottish professional women's player when she signed for US side Washington Spirit in 2002. Fleeting also spent nine years in total in a highly dominant Arsenal side in the English League where she won 17 major trophies including the UEFA Women's Cup (now called the UEFA Women's Champions League).
 
Awarded an MBE in 2008, perhaps Fleeting's greatest achievement is on the international stage, where she has netted a quite incredible 116 goals for Scotland in only 121 caps, to rank her as the world's sixth highest international female goalscorer of all time, but one of the most lethal with the joint highest ratio of goals to caps.
 
Following a few years out for the birth of her two daughters, Fleeting returned to action in Scotland and played for Celtic in the last two SWPL last seasons. After choosing not to sign for Celtic for season 2015, City were quick to snap up the 34 year old striker.
 
Commenting on signing Julie, City Head Coach, Eddie Wolecki Black said: "The signing of Julie adds to the attacking options and of course she brings experience which will help us both on and off the park. Her goalscoring record is very impressive and I hope she can get herself back to the level of fitness which will allow her to compete at the highest level again."
 
On signing for City, Julie said: "I'm looking forward to an exciting season with Glasgow City. We have such a talented group of players, many experienced and others young and enthusiastic. I'm hoping that I can shake off my recent injury and get back to enjoying football again. Where better to do so than Glasgow City."
