Hibs Women have today announced the signing of Motherwell full-back Lauren Doran-Barr.

Right-sided Doran Barr has signed a one-year-deal with the Easter Road Women.

The 23-year-old started her career in Rangers academy, before moving on to Stirling University.

She then moved to Motherwell in 2019, where she established herself as first choice right back.

Speaking to the official website, Lauren said:

"I’m really grateful for the opportunity. After speaking to Grant and Stewart and taking a look at the training facilities the club have got, I’m looking forward to getting started.

“In the games that I’ve played against Hibs, the fans have always been very loud, you definitely know that they’re there. I’m looking forward to meeting them and hopefully, we can put on some good performances and get good results."

Hibs boss Grant Scott added:

“Lauren is a player with great potential and I am pleased she has chosen to join us at Hibernian to continue her development. She arrives with valuable playing experience here in the SWPL, as well as at international level having represented Scotland throughout her youth.

We look forward to getting started and working together both on and off the pitch”


Grant Scott is certainley wasting no time in re-shaping his squad.

Nine players have left, and five have arrived, with the probability of more.

Lauren is the next piece of the jigsaw.

It's promising to be an exciting season for the women down at Meadowbank.
