Rovers Ladies can announce that Accrington & Rossendale College will be the new Regional Talent Club sponsors.

The deal will see the RTC use the facilities to train - moving from their previous facilities at Darwen Aldridge Community Academy. 

On Sundays, the Ladies development team use Accross as their home match day venue.

As part of the agreement the across logo will feature on the shirts of the girls teams in the RTC. Accrington and Rossendale College will also have pitchside boards at both Ewood Park and the Ladies' ground at Bamber Bridge.

Steven Buckley, the Head of Division for Sport, Health and Early Years at the College said: "The partnership is good one which works for all parties.

"It's a chance for us to support the premier girls and ladies team in Lancashire and it's a natural fit for us because as a college we have a strong tradition in women's football and it allows us all to come together and go forward.

"It's probably taken a year to come to fruition. We've been speaking about the partnership and believe that in a football sense and an education sense that we're a good fit. Working together with the RTC, we'll be able to provide an educational opportunity for players after the age of 16."

Gemma added: "I'm really pleased, it's been a long time coming but the benefits to us are massive in terms of the facilities. We have a state of the art 3G pitch, a sports hall, a testing lab, two gyms, a separate physio room and classrooms for analysis.

"All of that, coupled with the opportunity of further education taught by tutors who have previously been involved with Rovers Ladies make this a perfect partnershi.

"Our all-time leading goalscorer Katie Anderton is here and it's really exciting for us with a number of benefits across the three-year deal."
