GLASGOW City head coach has spoken glowingly about midfielder Leanne Ross.

Leanne played her 150th competitive game for City at the weekend when her side took on Spartans.

Since signing for the team in 2007, Leanne has earned six league titles, three league cups and two Scottish Cups.

And during her time with Glasgow City, the midfielder has scored an incredible 159 times.

Eddie Wolecki Black said: “Having worked with Leanne now for 6 years it’s fair to say I know the player pretty well.

“It is great testament to her dedication that she has now become the seventh all-time appearance holder at the club.

“There is no doubt she will join the list of great players that have played here over the years and her name will sit comfortably alongside the likes of Laura Montgomery, Katharina Lindner and Leanne Campbell as true legends of the club.

“I would only need one hand to count the amount of sessions she has missed for this club over the years.

“A closer look at the stats also reveals she has the most appearances this season having been the only player to have played a part in every single game.

Only two players have started more games.

“For any player to play so much at this club and combine it with national team duty is remarkable, for a player in their thirties to do it, makes the achievement all the more incredible.

“Leanne continues to be a great source of inspiration to others at the club and is always willing to talk and help youth players.

“Her goalscoring record is astonishing, and she is without doubt one of the calmest finishers I have ever worked with.

“I am sure she will go on and add to her impressive tally and the club will continue to benefit from her contribution for a few more years yet.”
