Club career[edit]

Liverpool[edit]

Everton[edit]

On 28 March 2017, having seen limited minutes for the Reds, Green made the move to their Merseyside rivals Everton in search of more playing time.[1] The following month, she made her Everton debut in a 2–1 defeat against Millwall Lionesses in the FA WSL 2 Spring Series.[4] Green scored her first Everton goal in a 4–0 win against London Bees to help clinch the 2017 Spring Series title.[5]

After the 2017–18 season, Green and Everton mutually agreed to terminate her contract.[6]

Manchester United[edit]

On 13 July 2018, it was announced that Green would join newly-formed Championship side Manchester United in their inaugural season.[7] She made her competitive debut for Manchester United in a 1–0 League Cup victory against Liverpool on 19 August.[8] She scored her first goal in the opening game of the 2018–19 FA Women's Championship season, a 12–0 win away to Aston Villa. On 25 November, she scored her first career hat-trick in an 8–0 win over Millwall.[9] In total, Green scored 5 goals in 3 games on the way to being named FA Women's Championship player of the month for November.[10]

2019–20 season: Loan to Sheffield United[edit]

Birmingham City[edit]

On 4 September 2020, it was announced Green's Manchester United contract had been terminated by mutual consent.[15] Three days later, Birmingham City announced her signing, reuniting Green with newly-appointed manager Carla Ward who had taken Green on loan at Sheffield United the previous season.[16]
