United captain Todd makes Motherwell switch

Dundee United captain Rachel Todd has swapped tangerine for claret and amber.

The left-back joins Motherwell after three seasons at Foundation Park having previously captained SWPL2 side St Johnstone.

She netted eight goals for United last season and captained the side to a play-off victory over Kilmarnock to retain their SWPL status.

"I'm delighted to have joined the club," Todd told club media.

"Paul [Brownlie] and Leanne [Crichton] really expressed their interest in bringing me to the club early over the summer and their vision for the future really attracted me to Motherwell.

"I am excited to get started and can't wait for the season ahead."

Manager Paul Brownlie added: "We identified Rachel as a key target during the previous season and have been working to get this over the line for many months.

"Earning the captaincy at both Dundee United and St Johnstone emphasises how important Rachel has been to both her previous clubs. A natural leader, Rachel will really develop our squad fort he season ahead."
