West Ham United sign Republic of Ireland international Jessie Stapleton | West Ham United F.C.



West Ham United Women is delighted to confirm the signing of Republic of Ireland international defender Jessie Stapleton

The 18-year-old makes the move to East London from League of Ireland Women’s Premier League side Shelbourne, where she helped the Dubliners to a league and cup double and featured 71 times, scoring 21 goals. 

The promising youngster earned her first senior cap for her country at the age of 17 and is the current captain of the U19s.  

Capable of playing in both defence and midfield, Stapleton will join Rehanne Skinner’s side as they prepare for the 2023/24 Barclays Women’s Super League season, and Stapleton is excited about the prospect of testing herself in the WSL.

“I’m delighted to join West Ham United”, she told 

“It’s a massive honour for me to sign for this Club. It’s been a dream of mine since I was a little kid to sign for a professional team and I can’t wait to get going. 

“Every player growing up now wants to play in the WSL, it’s one of the biggest and best leagues in the world. You watch the games every weekend over in Ireland. 

“There seems to be a great bunch of girls here at West Ham and I’m excited to get started with pre-season training ahead of the new season.”
