French club Bordeaux have announced the signing of goalkeeper Anna Moorhouse from Barclays FA Women’s Super League side West Ham United.
The Oldham-born stopper has signed a two-year deal with the French club where she hopes to establish herself as their first choice goalkeeper. The move was announced on Bordeaux’s official website earlier today. Moorhouse’s contract with West Ham United comes to an end this month, meaning that she moves to Bordeaux on a free transfer.
Moorhouse made four appearances for West Ham United in the Barclays FA Women’s Super League this season with rival keeper Courtney Brosnan featuring in The Hammers’ other 10 league matches. Moorhouse has spent the last two seasons at Rush Green after joining The Hammers from Arsenal, featuring in the club’s Women’s FA Cup final defeat to Manchester City at Wembley last season.
The player’s latest club Bordeaux narrowly missed on the UEFA Women’s Champions League after finishing third in the Division 1 Feminine this season. They were only four points behind Paris Saint-Germain when the season was brought to an early end.
West Ham United now have just one senior goalkeeper on their books in Brosnan therefore manager Matt Beard will be looking to sign at least one more player to compete for the number one jersey next season.
