Glasgow City re-sign Julie Nelson

We are delighted to announce that we 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.

Commenting on securing Nelson on board once more, City Head Coach, Eddie Wolecki Black said, “In football it shows how quickly things can change. I spoke with Julie at the end of the season and it was agreed she would go home and review her options. I had resigned myself to her departure and looked for another centre half to join us as a replacement. 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.“

On coming back to Glasgow City, Julie said, “After spending some time at home in the off-season and assessing my options, I’m delighted to be re-signing for Glasgow City again 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 in 2014 as well as competing in the Champions League”.
