Women's Sport: Scottish international Zoe Ness joins Rangers Women

Scotland v Cyprus - UEFA Women's EURO 2021 Qualifier

Rangers Women have announced the signing of midfielder Zoe Ness on a six-month deal, with an option of extending at the end of the contract.

Despite scoring in a World Cup qualifier against Poland, the 23-year-old missed out on the selections for the tournament in France 2019. 

Zoe Ness started her club career with local club Durham and returned there after a year following a spell with Swedish club Mallbackens, before spending six-months at Lewes FC.

The Rangers were able to secure the Scottish International, who is currently recovering from an injury sustained back in October, after their impressive commitment to the women's side.

"The availability of the physios and treatment and obviously being based at the training ground was the big thing for me to come and to move up here," she told RangersTV.

"I think it is brilliant that they are integrating the women into the men's training facility to make it one. I need to get back playing, so that is the main focus at the minute.

"The investment has probably been a big thing for the game in Scotland, so I am really excited to be here and see how it develops."

As well as the hands-on commitment to the women's side, Lewes FC is going above and beyond most clubs by providing an incredible amount of support behind the closed doors. Last year Shannon Moloney took a trip to the House's of Parliament to speak about discrimination in sport and this year the club did not shy away from the shocking gender-based disparity in the FA Cup prize fund by printing the stats on warm-up T-Shirts for both the women's and men's side.
