West Ham signs Anna Leat who joins the Hammers after finishing her college football career in the United States.
The 20-year-old spent the last few seasons at Georgetown in Washington, where she studied and played for the college football team. The New Zealand goalkeeper returned home when the pandemic hit, but kept training with the national team. Leat, who is British on her dad’s side, was part of All Black’s team in the Olympics in Tokyo.
“I’m so excited to join West Ham. The whole experience of coming here has been pretty unreal and it’s been something I’ve really been looking forward to for a long time now. I’ve definitely been putting in the hard yards to get to this point so it’s an awesome feeling to finally be here,” said Leat.
