Gemma Donnelly was pleased to get another deal over the line as she continues to shape her squad ahead of Rovers’ maiden Championship campaign.
Highly rated 19-year-old Lauren Thomas has joined the club from Women’s Super League side Liverpool.
And the Rovers boss is excited to see what the youngster can bring to the team.
“Lauren’s an abundance of energy, really fast, with quick feet as well as an eye for goal,” Donnelly said.
“She’s still quite young so I think she’s still got a lot to learn, but during training she has impressed.
“She’s just got her head down but she’s not scared of the older ones. She’s willing to go in and challenge and put the challenges in.
“In the friendlies she’s played she’s earned us some important free-kicks that we’ve capitalised on. She has that ability to put crosses into the right areas.”
