Women's Football: Young Lioness Sandy MacIver re-signs for Everton

England v Norway: U19 Women's Friendly

Everton continues to strengthen their squad through the hopeful hands of the goalkeeper, Sandy MacIver.

Sandy MacIver has signed an 18-month contract with the Blues after spending the past three seasons in America with the Clemson Tigers. Having gone through the academy before making the overseas move, it was a "no brainer" to return to the club.  

"My time here in the academy was really good, I learned a lot, but now I am really happy to be back".

Having been called into the senior Lioness squad last summer, MacIver has been thriving at the international stage. She was also named the tournaments 'best goalkeeper' at the Under-20s world cup in 2018.

With Everton currently placing 5th in the Women's Super League, MacIver will be competing alongside Kirstie Levell and Finland international Tinja-Riikka Korpela. 

MacIver added that "it's great to see the club doing so well".

With manager Willie Kirk recently securing the signing of Izzy Christiansen, the Merseyside club are not shying away from the big names in this transfer window.

"I think the ambition of this club is clear from where we are in the table heading into the second half of the season and the competition from the young players pushing up and the experienced players, too".

With the FAWSL returning this weekend, Everton will face West Ham on Sunday (5th January), where the two new signings could make their debuts.
