Danielle Hill has extended her contract with Blackburn Rovers Ladies for the upcoming season.

Hill, who first joined the club back in November 2015, described the decision to stay as an easy one and that she at a club that feels like home.

"I haven’t had a club where I have felt at home since Everton," said the keeper. "It may have only been a half season last year but I felt that I settled in really well. The biggest thing I noticed was the team cohesion and togetherness. Everybody involved in the club are like a big family.

"The team values on and off the pitch are what I wanted in a team so it was an easy decision to sign again this season."

The 28-year-old goalkeeper has a vast amount of experience within the game having played in several countries including Norway and Iceland, before returning to Everton. And she is hoping that the experience of the older players can help the team develop and manage games better. 

Hill added: "It is about getting to know the players on a one-to-one basis and using the experience that we have. Sometimes you need to use our game management experience from playing for as long as we have. You have to ask the question, do we need another goal or do we shut up shop and try to hold out?

"All that comes from experience and I think it’s been embedded in the younger players over the past half-season by myself, Jess (Holbrook) and Lynda (Shepherd). I think now everybody knows how to manage a game a little bit better."
