Hayley Nolan has opted to leave London City Lionesses after three seasons to pursue a different opportunity in professional football.
The Republic of Ireland international joined the Pride from the University of Hartford in 2020 and quickly established herself as a key player under Melissa Phillips and Nikita Runnacles.
Nolan made 57 appearances for London City, including every minute of the Club’s 2022-23 Barclays Women’s Championship campaign, but has decided to leave upon the expiry of her contract.
“Thank you for the most incredible three years,” wrote the 26-year-old on social media.
“I have been extremely lucky to be part of an environment that constantly pushed, motivated, and allowed me to grow as a player and person. That was truly because of the amazing staff members and players that I have worked with over the last three seasons.
“Every player and staff member played their part in pushing this club forward and putting us on the brink of promotion for the last two seasons. I personally want to say thank you to all of you for making my first experience within the professional game one that I have immensely enjoyed.
"Through the highs and lows, I have always had the most incredible support, the biggest fans, and the best of fans. I want to wish the Club, but most importantly the people on the ground, the best of luck.”
The Club would like to express its gratitude to Hayley for her incredible contributions over the last three seasons and wish her the very best for the future.
