Glasgow City have re-signed Northern Ireland international defender Julie Nelson for the upcoming season.

The defender first joined the Scottish Champions last summer from Everton and went on to help the team win the Scottish domestic treble as well as reaching the last 16 of the UEFA Women’s Champions League.

City head coach Eddie Wolecki Black said: “I spoke with Julie at the end of the season and it was agreed she would go home and review her options however she has had a change of mind and has agreed to stay for the forthcoming season. I am happy that my search for a second centre half is concluded and we now look well covered again in that area. I look forward to seeing Julie back with the team soon.”

Julie said: “I’m delighted to be re-signing for the upcoming season. I thoroughly enjoyed my short time with the club last year and look forward to moving back over to Glasgow and helping the team aim for more success domestically as well as competing in the Champions League.”
