Glasgow City are pleased to announce the signing of full back Cailin Michie on a pre-contract agreement from Swedish side Piteå IF.
Michie, is no stranger to the Scottish game, with the Edinburgh born defender spending 4-and-a-half successful seasons with SWPL rivals Hibernian, lifting 4 Premier League Cups and 3 Scottish Cups in her time there.
The twenty two year old made the switch to full time football at the turn of the year, signing for Piteå who play in the Swedish top flight, but has been lured back to Scotland much to the delight of City Head Coach Scott Booth.
He said, “I have tried to sign Cailin to be honest a number of times. I was not at all surprised when she got her move to Sweden and I am just delighted we have managed to persuade her to come back and join our vision for the future at the club. She is very versatile and can play both sides. She is young, hungry and a year playing every week in one of the most competitive leagues in Europe will have developed her even more. I am very much looking forward to seeing Cailin and her development grow even further in a Glasgow City shirt.”
Michie has joined City on a 2-and-a-half year contract and becomes Scott Booth’s eighth addition to the squad this campaign.
