NI stopper Becky Flaherty on the move

Northern Ireland goalkeeper Becky Flaherty has signed for Blackburn Rovers Ladies until the end of the season.

The 23-year-old stopper's move to the Lancashire club from Sheffield United was confirmed on Sunday morning. Flaherty made 13 appearances in goal over a 20-month spell at the Blades.

After a few injury setbacks, she returned to fitness to play her part in the international squad which qualified for the UEFA Women’s European Championships thanks to a memorable play-off victory over Ukraine.

Rovers’ manager Gemma Donnelly said Becky will bring 'experience and quality'. She told the club’s official website: "It’s great to have captured Becky to bolster our squad.

"We had originally looked to secure the services of Becky back in January and so she has been on my radar for a while now.

"Having just returned home from the incredible Euro qualification for Northern Ireland, Becky will add experience and quality to our team and I am thrilled she has chosen Blackburn."
