AMY ANDERSON SIGNS FIRST FULL-TIME CONTRACT WITH GLASGOW CITY

Glasgow City are delighted to welcome back youth academy graduate Amy Anderson with the midfielder agreeing a two-year-deal and a first full-time contract following her departure from Motherwell at the end of last season.

Having left City Anderson would go on to have success at Hamilton Academical where in 2019 she would be named Player of the Year as the Lanarkshire club claimed the SWPL2 title before she moved to her hometown club Motherwell in 2021.

After a successful three seasons with the Women of Steel the 26-year-old will now compete for a spot in the City midfield this forthcoming season.


Amy on signing for Glasgow City and the opportunity to play football full-time:

“When I heard that City were interested, it was a no-brainer. Giving up the Monday to Friday job to focus on football full-time for the next few years is something I’m really proud of and I’m going to give it my all.”

“I was here before at the U17’s and made my debut at fifteen, I moved away to get regular first team football but now I’m back and ready to compete for a place in the City first team and help the club challenge for silverware.” 

Quote from Glasgow City Head Coach Leanne Ross on signing Amy:

"I first came across Amy whilst she was playing in the Glasgow City youth academy and stepping up to train with the first team on occasion. Even at a young age, it was clear to see she had technical ability, game intelligence and plenty of confidence. Having moved elsewhere to pursue regular first team football, it is great that we can now welcome Amy back to the club as a much more experienced and equipped player.”

"With plenty of SWPL experience under her belt, Amy is an excellent addition to our squad. Her composure, vision and creativity on the ball give her the capability to play the important playmaker role in our midfield, while her tactical understanding and reading of the game offer valuable protection in front of our defensive line.

"It is great to have Amy back at Glasgow City. I look forward to seeing her development and contribution to the season ahead."
