Eilidh Currie Departs Pompey Women

Defender leaves the club

20 June 2021

Pompey Women

Pompey Women stalwart Eilidh Currie has left the club after seven years.

The defender was brought to the south coast by former manager Perry Northeast in 2014 and went on to feature in 23 games in that title-winning campaign.

The defender enjoyed the first of six Hampshire Cup triumphs in 2015, as she partnered Leeta Rutherford in a 4-1 victory over fierce rivals Southampton.

Currie opened her goalscoring account in a 2-0 success at Cardiff in 2018 and also struck the winner in the same fixture two years later.

"I can’t thank her enough for what she has given this club over the years and I wish her nothing but the very best."

Jay Sadler

A total of 143 outings for the Blues – with the century brought up in a 2019 National League clash with Watford – means she is ninth on the all-time apperance list.

Head coach Jay Sadler said: “Having featured more than 140 times for Pompey, Eilidh will leave with her own legacy, even at such a young age.

“I can’t thank her enough for what she has given this club over the years and I wish her nothing but the very best in her next footballing chapter.”

Everyone at Portsmouth Football Club would like to thank Eilidh for her unwavering loyalty and wish her the best for the future.
