Sunderland Ladies re-sign Hilde Gunn Olsen
Goalkeeper Hilde Gunn Olsen has re-signed with Sunderland Ladies as the squad prepares for the FA Women’s Super League.
The Norwegian U23 international has re-joined the club for a second spell after originally joining the Lady Black Cats in July 2015.
“I'm happy to be back,” said a delighted Olsen. “The people and place make me feel like this is my second home. I've made some close friends here and the facilities and coaches can help me becoming a better footballer.
“As a team we'll work hard together and for each other. I'll do my best to have an impact in the games and training so that everyone can get better and reach their potential.
“I don't think anyone expects a lot from us this Spring, but I really do believe in the players we have, so I think we might surprise people.”
Head Coach Carlton Fairweather said: “It is a pleasure to have Hilde back here at Sunderland. She is a very good asset to our side both as a goalkeeper and a positive influence around the team.”
