The departure of the 16-year-old leaves the Hibees with just one senior 'keeper in Jeni Currie after first-choice No.1 Jenna Fife joined Rangers Women earlier this week.

Four players have now left the club in the last week, with winger Jamie-Lee Napier joining Chelsea Women and full-back Cailin Michie signing for Swedish side Piteå IF.
