Rachel Louise Corsie (born 17 August 1989) is a Scottish football defender who plays for Seattle Reign FC in the National Women's Soccer League and the Scotland national team. She previously played for Glasgow City in the Scottish Women's Premier League and English FA WSL club Notts County. Corsie made her senior national team debut against France in March 2009 and has since amassed over eighty appearances for the national team.
In July 2008 Corsie joined Glasgow City from Aberdeen Ladies at age 18. In her first season with City she contributed 10 goals as the club won a domestic treble. She also featured in the UEFA Women's Champions League.
In May 2012, Corsie made her 100th league appearance for Glasgow City. Of the milestone, Glasgow City head coach Eddie Wolecki Black said, "I think it shows remarkable consistently she has managed to rack up 100 starts for the club in such a short period of time. People tend to forget that Rachel is still only 22 years of age and is continuing to develop as a player."
Corsie left Glasgow City for Notts County in January 2014, to fulfil her ambition of playing in England. She was attracted to playing at Meadow Lane and training full-time. In January 2015 it was announced by Notts County Ladies that Corsie had chosen not to continue with the club for their forthcoming season. After a successful year at Notts where she was captain throughout the season, she had also been awarded Supporters Player Of The Season and joint Managers Player Of The Season. Many fans rated Corsie as the best Centre Back of the 2014 season.
Corsie signed with American side Seattle Reign FC for the 2015 season of the National Women's Soccer League in January 2015. Of her signing, Reign FC head coach Laura Harvey said, "Rachel is a terrific player who will bring depth and experience to our backline. She will make the entire defensive unit stronger by providing us flexibility we lacked last season. We are excited to have her with the club and know she will make an impact."
On 25 September Corsie re-joined Glasgow City on loan from Seattle Reign FC.
Corsie captained the Scotland U-19 team to the finals of the 2008 UEFA Women's Under-19 Championship. At the 2009 Cyprus Cup, Corsie made her senior debut against France and was selected in all Scotland's games at the tournament.
As of January 2015, Corsie has earned over 70 caps for the senior national team and has scored 13 goals playing primarily in the central defender position. She scored three goals during the 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup qualification (UEFA). In March 2011, Corsie captained the team to a 2–0 win over England at the 2011 Cyprus Cup, a first for Scotland in more than 30 years.Results list Scotland's goal tally first.
Aberdeen legend Donald Colman was Corsie's great-grandfather. Corsie remains an Aberdeen FC supporter, and models her game on that of Zander Diamond. Corsie works in professional services at Ernst & Young as an Assurance Associate where her flexible working scheme enables her to do accountancy and football side by side. She studied at Hazlehead Academy and then undertook a degree in accountancy and finance at Robert Gordon University. Corsie was awarded a women's football scholarship by the SFA.
