Widening the gap

Glasgow City has gained another coup from rivals with the signing of defensive midfielder Danni Pagliarul.

Danni was the mainstay of a strong Spartans side for many seasons winning the League Cup with the Edinburgh side and challenging City for the title.

Having spent a short period away from the game due to illness, Danni’s return to top flight football immediately attracted the interest of City head coach Eddie Wolecki Black.

Eddie told ExtraSport: “The signing of Danni came about due to our injury problems at the club. We have suffered numerous long term injuries over the course of the past year or so and sadly we have also inherited a few players who have joined us not 100% fit.

“Technically she fits into our system and she has shown a great desire to learn very quickly how we play. I would like to wish Danni all the best and hope she can help us remain competitive”.

Danni added: “After what’s happened over the past couple of years, I never would have thought I would be playing for Glasgow City and have the chance to play in Europe. It was a very hard decision leaving Spartans, but they were very understanding and told me to follow my dream”.

Danni will be part of the City squad who travel to play in the UEFA Women’s Champions League on August 9.
