Spartans Women are delighted to announce the signing of Mya Bates from Glasgow City F.C. The exciting young winger has penned a one year deal ahead of the new SWPL 1 campaign. As Manager Debbi McCulloch continues to build a competitive squad for the league starting in early August, Bates will bring pace and creativeness to our attacking options.
Speaking to Spartans FC Women, Bates said:
“This is a really good and exciting opportunity for me to progress as a player in the SWPL 1. I spoke with Debbi in great depth and have been so impressed by what the club has to offer and the fantastic facilities Spartans have on offer. It’s amazing and has a great atmosphere.”
“My goals for the forthcoming season are to become a regular starter for Spartans, but I also appreciate how big an achievement it is for myself to sign for a club like Spartans. I’m 100% committed to developing my game and looking forward to the forthcoming season.”
Bates is Manager McCulloch’s second pre-season signing as we look to continue to strengthen the current squad. McCulloch said: “Mya is a player who we have admired for some time now. We had been keeping a close eye on Mya’s development when she was playing either against us in the SWPL 1 or with Glasgow City’s National Performance League U19’s. It was clear to us then that she had the ability to progress to the next level.”
“Mya is committed to working hard and has a competitive mentally which are key characteristics we look for in all our players. I have no doubt Mya will improve our current squad and I’m very much looking forward to working with her.”
Welcome to Spartans Mya!
