Kirsty Hanson


A hard-working winger who is comfortable on either flank.

Despite her attacking prowess, the Scotland youth international is seen regularly tracking back to support the full-back behind her.

Alongside teammate Jess Sigsworth, Hanson was part of the Doncaster Rovers squad which gained promotion from WSL2 in 2018 and she made it two in two with the Reds last season, contributing five goals in all competitions.

A former youth teamer at United, Hanson scored her first top-flight goal for the club in the 3-0 win over Tottenham and was later called up to the senior national set-up for the first time.
