Liverpool complete signing of Rylee Foster
Liverpool have completed the signing of Canada Under 20 international Goalkeeper Rylee Foster.
Foster aged 21 joins from the American college system after finishing a four-year spell at West Virginia University.
She made 84 appearances and kept 39 clean sheets for the university.
Liverpool Women manager Vicky Jepson said: “Rylee is a good signing for us. It’s about signing a good quality goalkeeper that brings competition to our current squad. She’s a fantastic fit for us for the future.
“We’re glad to have such a young, talented individual join our squad that will add strength. She’s settled in well and we’re looking forward to seeing what she’s capable of.”
Foster said “It’s been a dream for me to play for Liverpool since I was a young kid,” she said. “To be able to start my professional career and be in Liverpool – this was the ultimate goal for me – so to be able to start here is amazing
“I’m going to come in, work hard and do everything I can to help out”.
Foster also has a tattoo saying You’ll Never walk alone she said ” I got the tattoo in 2014 after my grandmother passed away. My grandparents are both from Wavertree in Liverpool but moved away during the war. It’s just a commemorative thing to show that they are always with me.”
She signs three days after fellow keeper Fran Kitching suffered a serious facial injury and could be set for her debut in the FA Cup this Sunday against Blackburn Rovers.
