Glasgow City sign Meikayla Moore
Glasgow City are delighted to announce the signing of New Zealand international Meikayla Moore from Liverpool.
The defender won her first cap for New Zealand aged 17 and received her 50th cap earlier this year. Moore was part of the New Zealand squad that won the 2014 and 2018 OFC Women’s Nations Cup and scored in the 2018 final against Fiji. Moore was also part of the New Zealand squad at the 2016 and 2020 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro and Tokyo while also playing at the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup.
Meikayla Moore said on joining Glasgow City: "First and foremost, I’m very excited to join the club and thankful for Eileen Gleeson and Laura Montgomery's trust in me as a player and person.
“I believe my work ethic and experience will add and continue the legacy that is Glasgow City FC. The club embodies so much of what I stand for as a person and I cannot wait to get started on the pitch and in the community. I feel this is exactly where I’m meant to be at this point in my career and I am empowered by my decision to sign with such a successful club.”
Head Coach Eileen Gleeson commented: “I’m delighted to welcome Meikayla to Glasgow City. Meikayla brings a wealth of experience at both club and national team level where she is a regular starter for a country ranked 22nd in the world. She is a humble, determined and intelligent player and adds more excellent quality to the exciting squad we are putting together for next season.
“To have three senior international centre backs at your club is an enviable position for any head coach and further increases our competition for places all over the pitch as we push our challenge for trophies next season. I have no doubt Meikayla will enhance our team and very much look forward to working with her.”
