Former Reading keeper Rachael Laws signs for relegated Liverpool ahead of 2020/21 season

Liverpool have announced the signing of keeper Rachael Laws ahead of their 2020/21 campaign in the Women’s Championship.

The 29 year-old left Women’s Super League side Reading in June after two years.

 The length of her contract with the Merseyside club has not yet been disclosed. 

Laws had a stint with Liverpool when she was on loan from Sunderland in 2013 and helped the squad to win the WSL title.

Speaking about her return, the shotstopper said: "I’m excited to be back, excited to start my new journey with Liverpool and looking forward to getting back and hopefully getting the club back to where they belong in the WSL.

"Hopefully I can make new memories now and hold them with me throughout my career."

And manager Vicky Jepson added: "This signing is great news, Rachael is an experienced WSL goalkeeper, who actually had her WSL debut with our club back in 2013, so it’s great to welcome Lawsy back. 

"She’s got the characteristics we expect from a goalkeeper, to demand and drive our outfield players to retain and build attacks and hopefully keep many clean sheets in the future."

Liverpool were relegated from the WSL last season after the final placings were decided on a points-per-game basis.
