New Glasgow City signing Lisa Evans felt like she ‘owed it’ to the club after returning on a three-year deal.

 

The 32-year old spent four years at the beginning of her career at Glasgow City winning four SWPL titles, two Scottish Cups and two SWPL Cups and she is hungry for more success this time around.

 

 

“I’m absolutely buzzing to be back” Evans said. “It’s been a while and I know things have changed massively with the club but I’m really excited to be back.”

 

The winger has since won league titles with both Bayern Munich and Arsenal and earned 109 caps her country but admits she now wants to give back to the club where it all began adding:

 

“Having started my journey in professional football with Glasgow City it was always something that I wanted to do, to come back and be part of it all again. I wanted to give back to the club everything that they have done for me.

“I’ve had a great playing career in Germany and down south and I felt like I owed it in some way to come back and to help Glasgow City get success again.”

 

Glasgow City head coach Leanne Ross insisted that Evans’ addition to the side with have a positive impact both on and off the pitch:

 

“A product of our youth academy, Lisa played her way into the first team, and soon became a fans favourite with her pacey, energetic attacking style of play and ability to create and score goals.

 

“With the ability to play full back, wing back or winger, Lisa’s quality, experience and versatility will be a major asset to the team for the season ahead. I am delighted Lisa has chosen to return to Glasgow City, I can’t wait to work with her once again and see the positive influence she can have on our players and environment.”
