LIVERPOOL LADIES today announced that goalkeeper Libby Stout has departed the club and will join up with Matt Beard at Boston Breakers, following the earlier announcement that Boston had also signed former Reds defender Whitney Engen.
Joining Liverpool from BV Cloppenburg in January 2014, Libby ironically made her home debut for the opposite side – a pre-season friendly against Doncaster saw them without a keeper, with Stout playing the first 45 against Liverpool and fellow keeper Danielle Gibbons the second.
From her competitive debut against Sunderland in The FA Cup it was clear Liverpool had made an excellent signing with a fantastic fingertip save on the stroke of half-time poking the ball wide, supporters were treated to many more over the next 2 years.
The no.1 went on to play a huge part in the Reds retention of their 2014 Women’s Super League title, keeping 9 clean sheets in a total 18 appearances and at the end of the campaign was voted @LFCladiesfans Signing of the Season.
Libby will be missed at Liverpool and I’d like to wish her all the best back in the US!
