Hearts Women Sign Addie Handley

27th September 2021

Hearts Women are thrilled to announce the signing of Addie Handley from Hibernian.

The Scotland U17 cap joins after a season with Hibs, having signed from Boroughmuir Thistle last summer, and made her debut off the bench in yesterday’s match with Rangers at Oriam.

Graduating through the Boroughmuir Thistle academy, Addie is no stranger to a number of her new teammates at Hearts, having spent time on international duty with them.

Addie is comfortable playing in midfield or defence, and brings great technical ability, fitness and athletic prowess to Eva Olid’s side. 

Speaking to heartsfc.co.uk, Addie couldn’t hide her excitement to be joining the Jambos. 

“I’m so happy to be here at Hearts. I really want to be playing at the best level possible. I didn’t get a run of games previously due to a variety of reasons including injury and the long break over lockdown, but I feel this is the right place for me to be. 

“I’m an athletic and quick player that’s good on the ball, I love getting forward and I’m aiming to grab some goals and assists this season. It’s been a rough few months for me but I feel really fit and powerful now, and I’m hopeful I can show what I can do here when I’m on the pitch."
