Hearts Women strengthen their squad with the signing of Siobhan Higgins.
The 24-year-old forward joins the club from the college football system in America and has signed a deal until the end of the 2020 season.
After a successful high school career, Higgins went on to play for college team UST Celts at the University of St. Thomas. A fantastic addition to Kevin Murphy’s squad, Higgins spent the second half of the 2019 season with city rivals, Hibernian Ladies, and brings crucial top-flight experience.
Speaking to heartsfc.co.uk, Siobhan said:
“I’m delighted to sign for Hearts Women, Kevin (Murphy, Girls Academy and Women’s Manager) has been aware of my potential for quite a long time and now I finally have the chance to prove myself as a player.
“The club’s aspirations for the women and girls’ game are fantastic and are identical to my beliefs, I’m eager to get on with the season and see what it brings. It’s only been a week and I already feel very welcomed by the squad and staff, they’ve definitely made my transition an enjoyable one!
“I’m hoping the SWPL 1 experience I gained with Hibernian Ladies can help the team make an impact, I know what it’s like to face each squad in the league.”
