Hibernian Women announce signing of Alexa Coyle

Hibernian Women are delighted to announce that American forward, Alexa Coyle, will join the club from 1 July 2021 on a pre-contract agreement.

Alexa becomes the fifth addition to Dean Gibson’s squad in the summer window, joining the previously announced Emma Heikkila, Gabby English, Toni Malone and Michaela McAlonie.

This will be Alexa’s first taste of European football, as she joins the club from the University of Montana. Playing for the Montana Grizzlies for four years, Alexa scored five goals in 11 games in her senior year.

After joining the club, Alexa said, “I couldn’t be more excited to be joining Hibernian. I am very grateful for the opportunity to play for this organization. Looking forward to getting to Edinburgh, meeting my new teammates, and getting to work! Go Hibees!”

Gibson conveyed his own excitement at being able to add Alexa to his squad, saying, “I have been chatting to Alexa for a few weeks, so I’m delighted to finally get this completed and excited to get Alexa over for pre-season.

“Alexa is a player with bags of athleticism, has a real good work ethic and has a physical presence. She will provide another dimension to our front line and provide competition for the current group of players.

“I’m really excited with the group that we have and can’t wait to get going again!”
