The 33-year-old goalkeeper is a familiar place in Birmingham, where she played already between 2010 and 2013. During her first spell, she also won the FA Cup. After leaving Birmingham, Hourihan played for Chelsea, Manchester City, Brighton & Hove Albion and Braga. She played in Portugal since 2019. The experienced Irish international will start a new season of the Women’s Super League next weekend.

“It is great to be back at a club where I had so much success in the past and one that holds so many happy memories for me. Once I knew of the interest from here, it was an easy decision.
