Katie Startup joined Liverpool FC Women on a season-long loan deal from Brighton and Hove Albion Women, in August 2021.

She arrives at the Reds with plenty of Championship experience under her belt having spent last season playing at Charlton Athletic Women.

Startup has also been called up by England at U15, U17 and U19 international level and will join Rachael Laws and Rylee Foster in the Reds’ goalkeeping group this season.

LFC Women goalkeeping coach Joe Potts said: “It’s really important for us to have a strong level of healthy competition for what is a really important position within the club.

“I’m delighted for Katie to be here and there’s a good dynamic between the three goalkeepers already.

“Hopefully she can develop further in her career and help us get to where we want to be.

“If you look at all the top teams they have three top goalkeepers and I think that’s the way it’s going in men’s and women’s football these days.”
