SHAMROCK ROVERS FC has announced its second signing for its new Women’s National League team for the 2023 season.

Republic of Ireland underage goalkeeper Summer Lawless arrives from Peamount United. Lawless is the current U19 number one, having played for Ireland at every age from U15.

She follows clubmate Áine O’Gorman to the Hoops.

“I am really looking forward to getting started at Rovers, it’s a great opportunity for me to play at the highest level,” Lawless said.

“I am excited to be part of the plans Rovers have for the Women’s game.”

Shamrock Rovers women’s first-team manager Collie O’Neill said: “I’m delighted to have Summer on board, she has all the attributes which all top keepers must have including being very comfortable on the ball which will help us play the brand of football we want to play.”
