The shot-stopper, who began her career with Manchester United, made the move to the Academy Stadium in 2015 and has already gone on to feature for the first-team.
Keating deputised admirably in the absence of senior stars Karen Bardsley, Ellie Roebuck and Karima Taieb in the 2021/22 campaign, making her senior debut against Leicester in the Continental Cup and preserving a clean sheet.
Growing up in Ardwick, the youngster played football in the park with her friends before her mother organised a team of children in the local community.
The budding starlet then joined a boys' team before being scouted for United as a striker! When nerves got the better of her, she decided to try her luck in goal and unearthed a natural talent.
After moving to City, she began training with the first-team at 16 and made five appearances in the 2021/22 campaign: three in the FA Women's Super League and two in the Continental Cup.
She also spent time on loan at AFC Fylde to gain more first-team experience.
Working her way through the England ranks, Keating represents the Lionesses at Under-19s level.
The youngster gained further experience during a three-month loan spell at Women's Championship side Coventry United between January and April 2023.
She was recalled to City following an injury to Sandy MacIver. And during our final five games of the campaign, featured three times.
