Duo return to boost Ladies squad

7 December 2014

Rovers Ladies have re-signed Welsh youth internationals Gemma Jackson and Kelly Bourne.

Goalkeeper Gemma and defensive midfielder Kelly both return to Rovers having left the club earlier this year.

Gemma joined reigning Women's Super League champions Liverpool in January and will now provide competition for first-choice keeper Jo Hutcheson.

Kelly, who represented her country at the European Women's Under-19 Championship finals, first arrived at Rovers from Cardiff City in November 2013.

The duo both featured in Rovers' 10-0 victory over Bury in the quarter-finals of the Lancashire FA Womens Challenge Cup.

Their return is a timely boost for Rovers after fellow recent recruit Sophia Riccio picked up a serious knee injury in the Bury game and is set for a spell on the sidelines.
