Bio

Forward Caroline Weir joined City from Liverpool as the Club's second signing of the summer in June 2018.

The 22-year-old secured Scotland’s Player of the Year Award in 2016 and netted six goals over the course of the 2017/18 season.

She made the move to Manchester in a bid to challenge for trophies and make a Champions League return.

Weir, who has moved through the ranks at Arsenal, Bristol City and Liverpool describes herself as an attacking midfielder who is eager to create. The Scot likes to be amongst the goals and has been described as having a habit for scoring long-range strikes.

While Dunfermline-born Weir is keen to play alongside fellow Scots Claire Emslie and Jen Beattie, she is also excited to link up with defensive midfielder Keira Walsh.

Nick Cushing described Caroline as 'a player with real technical ability, and someone who we know will strengthen our squad' with a desire to improve her game.

While our new number 19 is excited to challenge for the FA Women’s Super League title, the Continental Tyres Cup and the FA Cup, Weir has her eyes firmly set on European action.

She collected her first piece of major silverware with City with the 2019 Conti Cup Final success over Arsenal, gaining the Player of the Match award at Bramall Lane with a tireless display and played 85 minutes of the 3-0 FA Women's Cup final victory against West Ham.just a few months later.
