Honours: FA Women’s Championship (2021-22)

Katie Stengel arrived at Liverpool FC Women midway through 2021-22 to play her part in securing promotion back to the Barclays Women's Super League. 

Signing in January 2022, the American striker scored nine goals as Matt Beard's side won the FA Women's Championship and, therefore, a return to the top flight. 

The Florida-born player possesses vast amounts of experience and came to the Reds following a spell with Norwegian side Valerenga. 

Stengel has played most of her football in America’s Nation Women’s Soccer League and in Australia.

She originally emerged from the American college scene, shining as she became the all-time leading goal scorer at Wake Forest and earning All-American honours three times.

She had a spell at Bayern Munich in the Frauen-Bundesliga, top scoring in their title-winning season in 2015.

Returning to the US, she settled with Washington Spirit before later moving on to Boston Breakers, where she played under Beard in 2017, and later Utah Royals.

The forward also enjoyed loan spells to play down under in the Australian W-League, representing the Western Sydney Wanderers and Newcastle Jets, where she finished runner-up in the Golden Boot standings.

After leaving the Royals in 2020, she briefly joined Houston Dash before heading to Norway.

Internationally, Stengel has represented the USA at U20 and U23 level, winning the FIFA U20 World Cup.
