Rovers Ladies are pleased to confirm that Lagan Makin has rejoined the club.

A product of the club’s youth system, Makin played for Rovers’ Reserves at the age of 16, before leaving in search of first team football.

She rejoined the club from Manchester City in November 2011 and went on to score seven goals in 15 appearances.

After spells with Preston North End, Sheffield FC and AFC Fylde, Makin admits it was an easy decision to return to Rovers for a third spell.

“It was an easy decision for me to join the club," Lagan said.

"The girls and staff have made me feel very welcome and I’m hoping I can continue my good form.”

The pacy and skilful forward has scored seven goals in six games for Fylde this season and is hoping to continue her fine form.

“I’ll be aiming to continue my scoring run and provide an even bigger threat in front of goal for Rovers,” she added.

“With the way the manager wants me to play, hopefully my speed and creativity will fit in nicely with the group.”

Rovers Ladies manager Gemma Donnelly is pleased to have brought Makin back to the club and she hopes her exciting ability will come to the fore in Rovers colours.

“I am delighted that we have been able to bring Lagan in,” said Donnelly.

“Lagan’s a natural left-footer and offers a constant threat in front of goal. She isn’t a new face in a Rovers shirt and even though it wasn’t in my tenure, her previous spell showed her to be an exciting player on the pitch.

“I’m pleased she’s chosen to join us and I cannot wait to start working with her.”
