Glasgow City sign Christie Murray
« on: January 25, 2011, 10:45:03 PM »

Christie Murray has joins Glasgow City from rivals Celtic where she has spent the last four seasons, having began her senior career with Queens Park.

Only 20 years old, Christie is now one of six City players at the SFA National Academy in Stirling and despite her young years is already a firm member of Anna Signeul’s senior national set-up.

Commenting on the signing, City Head Coach Eddie Wolecki Black said, “Without doubt this is THE signing of the close season. Everyone knows how fantastic a player Christie is, she is one of the most naturally gifted footballers in this country. She is a tremendous addition to our team and will compliment the players that are here. She suits our attacking style of play and I am really looking forward to working with her over this and further seasons to come. I feel she will really develop at this club and I hope she goes on to win many trophies with us. She has a great attitude both on and off the park and hopefully with a little bit of help, she can go very far in the game.”

Christie herself is delighted to have joined City. She said, “I won’t deny it was very difficult to leave Celtic as I am a loyal player and I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Celtic. However, I felt it was the right time to move and there was only one team I feel I could have gone to. City have without doubt been the benchmark in recent years and having been at my first couple of training sessions I can see why. They are a great bunch of girls and I am really looking forward to pushing myself into the team and hopefully we can have a successful season ahead.”

Good on ya Christie Murray! What a brilliant little player she is. I was lucky enough to play a season with her at Carson-Newman and she was a delight to have as a striker partner. Always looking for those little runs in behind and has unbelievable vision of her team mates runs and an ability to dance through defenders that are sometimes twice her size.
Champions of Norway!!!!!

It would seem that Scottish international Christie Murray may be set to move to a team in the top flight in England soon and she may not be the only one with speculation that other Scottish internationals such as Eilish McSorley may be set to join her and move down south in time for the forthcoming season.

It is expected that both players will be joining Arsenal. Eilish actually had the opportunity of joining Arsenal a few years ago when Tony Gervaise was managing the club.

FIFA Regulations governing the Status and Transfer of Players require National Associations to issue an International Transfer Certificate [ITC] for any player over the age of 12 who is moving from one National Association to another.

If the ITC does not come, it is a problem, although a team can use a temporary one but it can create a thunderstorm...
