On the final day of the transfer window, Young Irish international Abbie Larkin has sealed a move to Glasgow City, a prominent Scottish football club. The 18-year-old forward, known for her impressive performances during the World Cup, has made the switch from Shamrock Rovers, marking a significant development in her career.
"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 in my career," Larkin said.
Larkin has made a memorable impression on Irish soccer. Last year, Larkin had a successful season with Shelbourne, securing both the League and Cup titles. This season, she ventured to Shamrock Rovers and reached a historic milestone this summer when she became the youngest Irish player ever to participate in the World Cup.
Leanne Ross, the Head Coach of Glasgow City, welcomed the addition of Larkin on the 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.”
