In her schooldays, Beattie was selected as captain of the Glasgow Primary School side, despite being the only girl on the team. Having played for Hamilton Academical's boys teams, she embarked on a senior career with Queens Park.

At the age of 15, she competed in the Scottish Women's Premier League and Scottish Women's Premier League Cup before joining Celtic the following January and clinching two domestic trophies.

She then made the move to Arsenal in 2009 where she enjoyed her most successful period to date, securing seven major honours, scoring a variety of stunning goals and memorably netting hat-tricks in famous victories over Chelsea and Barcelona.

Beattie also brings with her a wealth of international experience, having notched more than 80 appearances for her national side.

The youngster describes her playing style as physical, communicative and attack-minded - evident with her fine goalscoring record.
