Glasgow City are thrilled to announce the signing or Republic of Ireland international Abbie Larkin on transfer deadline day.
The 18-year-old attacking player transfers from Shamrock Rovers and will join up with her new teammates after the upcoming international window.
Larkin started her senior club career with League of Ireland Women's Premier League side Shelbourne, helping them win the League and Cup double in 2022 before moving to Shamrock Rovers at the start of the year.
On the international stage, Larkin has excelled, making her senior international debut at only 16 years of age in February 2022 at the Pinatar Cup. She scored her first senior international goal versus Georgia a few months later and this summer she was selected for the Republic of Ireland's World Cup squad. On the biggest stage in Australia she made history again, coming on in all three group games and in turn became the youngest Irish player ever to play at a World Cup.
Abbie Larkin on signing for the club:
“I’m delighted to be signing for Glasgow City FC. I’m excited to get started and I am looking forward to this next step of my career.”
Head Coach Leanne Ross on the signing:
“I am delighted to have secured the signing of Abbie Larkin on transfer deadline day.
With a long, tough season still ahead, it was important to strengthen the attacking options within the squad, so to bring in a player of Abbie’s quality and experience is a huge coup.
Although just 18 years of age, Abbie has already played in the Champions League and represented the Republic of Ireland at the World Cup Finals this summer, achievements which highlight the calibre of player she is.
Abbie is a technically gifted, creative player with an eye for goal. She can play attacking midfield or forward positions and will certainly add to the attacking threat posed by the team with her ability to assist and score goals.
I am excited to bring Abbie to Glasgow City and very much look forward to working with her.”
