London City Lionesses sign goalkeeper Shae Yanez from NWSL’s Washington Spirit

The London City Lionesses have announced the signing of Shae Yanez ahead of the 2020/21 Championship season.

The 23 year-old shot-stopper has come from National Women’s Soccer League side Washington Spirit.

On her signing, she said: "I am really excited to join the London City Lionesses for the upcoming season. The standards, professionalism and facilities are absolutely amazing and are a few of the reasons why I decided to join this club. 

“The culture and environment set forth by the coaches, staff, and players provides an atmosphere for players to not only grow and learn every day, but also be challenged and competitive.”

Head coach Lisa Fallon added: "Shae is an incredibly driven professional with an insatiable work ethic.

“Her presence, strength and resilience are striking for a young player and we are very excited about supporting her development and letting her character and ability shine in our squad.”

The side finished fourth at the end of last season after the Football Association terminated women’s football due to the coronavirus pandemic.
