    Another new signing for Celtic’s Women

    By: Newsroom Staff on 21 Dec, 2015 16:36

  • THE Celtic Women’s team have secured the signature of 20-year-old defender Stephanie Knox as they continue to build their squad for the forthcoming 2016 summer season.

    Stephanie has been involved in Scotland international squads at U17 and U19 levels where she has played alongside Hoops players such as Kirstin McGuire, Megan Cunningham, Maddy Fulton and Kelly Clark, so she should be able to settle in quickly.

    Her interest in football began when she joined kick-abouts with boys outside her gran’s home, she played with the boys of Ardgowan Thistle U11s and U12s before joining Paisley Saints girls aged 11 in 2006, where she stayed for three seasons.  She also represented her high school girls’ team. 

    As she progressed, she joined Rangers in March 2009 and has been there ever since.

    She told the official Celtic website: “I attended Rangers Community Soccer Schools and was invited to take part in their elite squad sessions on Sundays at Murray Park. My coach there was Bobby Russell. Their youth system was only for boys, but I was invited to join their girls’ set-up, aged 14.

    “I’ve recently missed a good bit of playing-time through injury, and just felt that it was time for a change. I was delighted when I was asked to join Celtic and my immediate aim is to establish myself in the first team – hopefully at full-back.

    "I had heard that things were very much on the ‘up’ at Celtic, and I’ve been really impressed so far.  I hope I can contribute to Celtic’s push for the top.”
