Teagan Micah Takes Next Step with Liverpool in the Women’s Super League

Liverpool FC Women have signed Redcliffe State High School alumna and Australian international goalkeeper Teagan Micah to strengthen their squad ahead of the 2023-24 English Women’s Super League (WSL) season. The 25-year-old will now be tested in one of the top women’s leagues as the Reds’ new shot-stopper.

Micah joins Liverpool after two successful seasons with FC Rosengård in Sweden. There, she won back-to-back Damallsvenskan titles and the Swedish Women’s Cup. She helped Rosengård to the groups of the 2023 Women’s Champions League with solid goalkeeping in the qualifying rounds.

The keeper has 14 caps for the Matildas including an appearance at the 2019 Women’s World Cup. Earlier this year, she overcame a serious concussion to return to football in time for the Matildas’ World Cup campaign.

At Liverpool, Micah will be battling for the No.1 spot as they look to build on their first season back in the WSL following promotion in 2022. The Reds impressed in their opening game last season, beating defending champions Chelsea. However, they finished in 7th place, well out of contention for a European spot.

Liverpool FC is a historic football club – England’s most successful in Europe – but are still building their women’s side to compete with the likes of Chelsea and Arsenal.

Ambitions at new club

Micah expressed her excitement at joining Liverpool, citing the club’s history and stature. She also cited the high level of competition in the WSL as a key factor in her decision.

The Australian keeper was clear about her ambitions at Liverpool, saying she hopes to help the club qualify for the UEFA Women’s Champions League in the coming years.

Liverpool are currently preparing for the 2023-24 campaign, with ongoing pre-season fixtures including the AMOS Women’s French Cup against Paris Saint-Germain on August 28. Their league opener against Arsenal on October 1 will give Micah the chance to come up against Matildas teammates Steph Catley and Caitlin Foord.

Joining the up-and-coming WSL side is the latest impressive step in Micah’s career progression.

Micah’s journey started in regional Victoria where she first discovered football. At age 10, her family moved to Redcliffe where she joined the Redcliffe State High School Women’s Football Excellence Program.

During her late teens, Teagan Micah worked locally as a waiter. She loved interacting with customers at Pilpel By The Sea in Suttons Beach and that experience taught her so much about hard work.

After Redcliffe, Micah’s talents earned her a scholarship to the University of California, Los Angeles. She recalled how her teachers at UCLA encouraged her to take the chance. The soccer player said she will always be grateful for their support.

Recently, Micah feared her career was over after a serious concussion left her bed-bound for months. But now she has recovered and is feeling positive. She can’t wait to play in the World Cup, especially with it being in Australia. For her, pulling on the jersey will be emotional.
