YEOVIL Town Ladies have signed Rachel McLauchlan from Hibernian Ladies.

The talented winger impressed manager Lee Burch and he was immediately keen to sign her to boost his attacking options.

Burch said: “We are really pleased to be able to get Rachel on board. Scotland and clubs like Hibernian in particular have been producing some excellent players for a while now and it has become a real hot bed of talent.

“She is an exciting attacking player who has already fitted in well with the players on and off the field and I am really excited to see the impact she can make for us.”

McLauchlan joins the squad having enjoyed a successful past year in Scotland.

Despite suffering an ankle injury at the start of 2018, she recovered well and won the Players’ Player of the Year award at the club’s end of season celebration.

The 21-year-old was a major part of the side who won the SSE Scottish Women’s Cup Final back in November for the third year in a row.

McLauchlan said: “I am really pleased to have signed for Yeovil. I know how much the club has improved this season and I can already tell it is a great club to be at.

“We are looking to have a positive second half of the season and I am excited to get going. I want to thank everyone at Hibs as I had a great time there and achieved a lot. I am now raring to go with this new challenge – starting with Bristol City on Sunday.”
