Marissa Callaghan has stepped away from her role as captain of the Northern Ireland senior women’s team. 

Callaghan, who plays for Cliftonville, has lead the side out on 52 occasions and during their first ever major tournament, the Euros in 2022.

“I feel now is the right time for me to pass on the armband,” said Callaghan.

“This decision was not taken lightly and I truly believe this is the best decision for not only myself but more importantly the squad. 

“I love representing Northern Ireland and I can’t wait to continue to wear the Green shirt with pride and bring more success to our wee country.”
