Ruesha Littlejohn (born 3 July 1990) is an Irish footballer who plays as a striker for FA WSL club West Ham United. She has also had four spells with Glasgow City and stints with Norwegian First Division club IL Sandviken and English sides Arsenal, Liverpool and London Bees.
Despite having played youth football for Scotland, Littlejohn chose to feature at the senior level for the Republic of Ireland.
Littlejohn represented Scotland at Under–15 and Under–17 level. At the Under–19 age group, Littlejohn was part of the side which qualified for the 2008 UEFA Womens Under-19 Championship in France. She scored Scotlands only goal in a 3–1 defeat to England at the final tournament group stage. Littlejohn scored 12 goals in her 15 appearances for Scotland Under–19s.
Scotlands senior national team coach Anna Signeul excluded Littlejohn due to personal differences: "Em, well, the senior manager was not a fan of mine. I think she thought I had too much carry on, a little personality, and she was not really into that."
After three year of not playing internationally, Littlejohn situation caught the eye of Arsenal teammates Emma Byrne, Yvonne Tracy and Niamh Fahey. They alerted the FAI to her eligibility through her maternal grandparents.
In February 2012 Littlejohn received her first call–up to the senior Republic of Ireland squad, for the 2012 Algarve Cup.
She made her debut with the Irish national team against Hungary at the final game of the Algarve Cup on 7 March 2012. Ireland won 2–1 to avoid a last place finish.
