SIGNING: Irish International Saoirse Noonan Joins Durham

Durham Women FC are delighted to confirm the signing of forward Saoirse Noonan – subject to international clearance.

The Republic of Ireland international joins the Wildcats after a successful 2021, which saw her achieve success at both domestic and international level.

Noonan, who can play anywhere across the frontline, was a key part of Shelbourne’s triumph in the FAI Women’s National League and scored 12 times en route to lifting the league title.

And the forward also earned call-ups for Ireland’s senior national team – which culminated in her scoring her first international goal in a win over Georgia late last year.

Now, Noonan is looking forward to testing herself in the FA Women’s Championship.

“It’s brilliant to be here,” she said.

“This is a really competitive club and they’ve been up there, so I’m buzzing to get going and ready to compete.

“I’d say I’m quite a technical player and dangerous in and around the box – and I’m good in the air.

“I just can’t wait to get going now.”

Lee Sanders added: “Saoirse is another positive signing for the club and is a player who we have been working on for a number of months. 

“She’s another forward – which was an area we wanted to add to – and her record in front of goal and in terms of assists stood out. 

“She’s had that league winning success coupled with a break into the national squad and working with our coaching staff – Rich [head coach], Steve and the support staff – we’re excited to see what she can add here at Durham.”

The deal for Noonan was completed before Thursday’s 11:59pm deadline, and remains subject to international clearance.
