LAUREN DAVIDSON DEPARTS

Glasgow City can confirm that Lauren Davidson will leave the club to sign with this year’s UWCL quarterfinalists SK Brann of Norway.

This follows an immensely successful four senior years at the club for Lauren, a period of time that saw her climb into the top ten on the City all time goal scorers list, netting on 77 occasions in 135 appearances. She also earned fifteen caps for the Scottish Women’s National team during this time.

Her further accolades include being SWPL top scorer and the Club’s player of the year for the 2022/23 season. She made 12 appearances in the UEFA Women’s Champions League, scoring 2 goals.

Lauren’s consistent quality, team spirit, and heroics under pressure (that goal at Ibrox), see her leave Springburn a City legend at the age of just 22.

Lauren Davidson’s time at City in her own words:

“From my debut in 2020 to scoring the 92nd minute league winner at Ibrox, everything in between and everything since, it’s been a rollercoaster, but a time I’ll never forget.

“Over the years I have been lucky enough to work with amazing coaches, players and staff who have helped shape me into the player and person I am today, and I have made some friends for life.

“I’ll be a forever fan, supporting the club from afar.”

Commenting on her departure, Head Coach Leanne Ross had this to say: 

"Having had two different spells at Glasgow City, first in the youth academy and now four years in the first team, Lauren is a good example of the Once City Always City motto.

"Playing alongside Lauren on her return to the club, it was clear to see she had the belief and talent to shine in our team. Her ability to score goals and assist others has been impressive throughout her time here, but she has also developed so many other positive and impactful aspects of her game.

"Lauren has played a big part in the success achieved by the club over the years but will always be remembered for her 92nd minute goal at Ibrox which secured the 2022/23 SWPL title.

"It has been a pleasure playing a small part in Lauren’s development, first as her teammate and now as her coach. Lauren will be a massive loss to this team but everyone at Glasgow City is proud of the player she has become, and we all wish her the very best of success in her future career."

Everyone involved with the club wishes Lauren every success for her future.
