Surprise as Birmingham City sign Sarah Ewens from Celtic for Undisclosed Fee

Celtic FC Women have confirmed that the club has sold top goalscorer Sarah Ewens to Birmingham City for an undisclosed fee.

The Women’s Super League club moved for the 29 year old Celtic goalscorer who in her four years at Celtic following a move from Hibs scored 64 goals in 98 competitive matches for Celtic.

Perhaps Sarah’s best season was in 2019 where she scored 22 goals and becoming the only player to score against every team in the league.

Ewens’ goal contribution of 14 for the 2021/22 season played a massive part in the Celts’ historic Champions League qualification, including her all-important late winner against Rangers that put European football in their own hands.

Sarah said: “I’d like to thank everyone at Celtic for my time there and especially for the opportunity of signing my first professional contract. I’ve had a great four and a half years at the club and made some great memories with some great people.”

Everyone at Celtic will wish Sarah all the best for her future and thank her for her efforts at Celtic.

“A massive thank you to everyone Celtic FC Women for the last 4 and a half years! Iv made some great memories and even better friendships. Good luck to the team in this special season ahead in the Champions League,” Sarah Ewens stated on her social media account.
