Liverpool FC Women are delighted to announce the signing of Teagan Micah.

The goalkeeper joins Matt Beard’s Reds from FC Rosengard in Sweden, where she has played since 2021.

Micah is part of the Australia squad that will commence their Women’s World Cup campaign this week against the Republic of Ireland.

After a stellar college career in the USA at UCLA, Micah played with Norwegian sides Arna-Bjonar and Sandviken prior to her switch to Rosengard, and had a stint with Melbourne City in her home nation.

Rosengard have lifted the last two league titles in Sweden, while Micah also picked up valuable Champions League experience in her time with the club.

Shortly after signing her contract, she told “I’m excited to be here. It’s Liverpool Football Club, so it’s massive and I’m just really excited for this next chapter in my career.

“Having good chats with Matt and Pottsy [Joe Potts], the ’keeper coach, I got a really good vibe from them, and it’s such a good club with a lot of history to it.

“For me, it was also about getting into the WSL – I know it’s turning into the best league in the world. To be able to compete against the best players in the world is really important for myself, for my career.

“I can just see this club is going places, it’s investing, so there are a lot of good factors coming together.”

The 25-year-old is hoping her presence with LFC Women will attract even more Australian fans to the club and is keen to get started later in the summer.

She continued: “Liverpool are a massive club around the world, so hopefully with another Aussie at the club they can get around it even more.

“I hope I can help take us to the next level and hopefully cement us as a Champions League team in the years to come.

“I’m just proper excited, really stoked to be here and can’t wait to get to work after the World Cup.”

Beard is delighted by his latest signing and believes Micah will be a valuable addition to his goalkeeping group.

He said: “We feel we’re getting Teagan at a very good time – at the peak of her career – and we’re looking forward to working with her.

“The fact that she’s won titles, played for big clubs, played in Champions League games, she’s experienced different things even at a young age for a goalkeeper – that experience will be invaluable and hopefully we’ll be able to draw on that throughout the course of the season.

“Pre-season is a clean slate, last season has gone now, so you rip that up and start again. We want to have two or three players for each position. It’s important we have that competition. 

“She’s completely different to the goalkeepers we’ve got and she’s going to be a great addition to the squad.”

Micah is the fourth acquisition of the summer window for the Reds following the arrivals of Natasha Flint, Jenna Clark and Mia Enderby.
