Popular forward Natasha Dowie returned to Liverpool FC Women on loan for the remainder of the 2022-23 season, on January 31 2023.
She previously enjoyed a hugely successful three seasons with the club under current LFC Women manager Matt Beard from 2013 to 2015, netting 45 goals in 66 appearances.
That period produced two Women’s Super League titles, with Dowie the division’s top scorer and FA Players’ Player of the Year in the first triumph.
In 2016, she followed Beard to the USA where she joined him at the Boston Breakers until it folded in 2018.
She made Melbourne Victory her next permanent home, helping them to a W-League Premiership title in her two years before a spell in Italy with AC Milan.
Dowie joined Reading in 2021, where she has continued to ply her trade in the English top flight.
Reflecting on her return to the Reds, Dowie said: "It’s been a surreal last couple of days and it’s all happened quite quickly, to be honest. But I’m over the moon to be back. This is my home and it’s where I’ve had such great memories – the best memories of my football career, winning the league here.
"I’m just really excited for the next four months. I'm on loan from Reading but I just really want to help Liverpool get up the table as much as I can and be involved."
