Jane Ross (born 18 September 1989) is a Scottish professional footballer who currently plays for Manchester City in the English FA WSL and the Scotland women's national team.


Club career

Ross grew up on the Isle of Bute and after attending local coaching clinics, began her career at youth level with Paisley Saints Ladies. By the age of 16, she had already been called into the Scotland Women's U19 squad. She joined Glasgow City in July 2006, winning players' player of the year in her first season and was part of the City squad that has won five consecutive Scottish Women's Premier League titles and reached the last 16 of the UEFA Women's Champions League.

At the end of the 2012 season, Ross had a trial period in Denmark with earlier Champions League opponents Fortuna Hjorring, before heading for further trials with several clubs in Sweden.

She agreed a professional contract with Vittsjo GIK at the end of December 2012, joining fellow Scotland international Ifeoma Dieke at the club. Ross scored on her debut for Vittsjo in a pre-season friendly match against Danish side B93/HIK/Skjold in February 2013. After 11 goals in her debut season, Ross was linked with a transfer to English FA WSL club Arsenal Ladies. Both Ross and Dieke extended their contracts with Vittsjo for another season in December 2013. Ross left Vittsjo after the 2015 season, having scored 51 goals in 82 appearances for the club.

Ross signed a two-year contract with Manchester City in November 2015.

International career

Ross won her first full international cap for Scotland against England in March 2009, and scored her first international goal in August the same year against Denmark. She made her fiftieth international appearance against the Netherlands in the 2013 Cyprus Cup tournament.

June 2012 saw Ross named one of four reserves to the 18–player Great Britain squad for the 2012 London Olympics.

Ross studied at the University of Stirling on a scholarship as part of the SFA National Women's Football Academy. She has deferred her M.Phil. degree while she pursues her professional career.
