Gemma Donnelly is thrilled to have landed her first summer signing ahead of the Championship campaign – Rhema Lord-Mears from RSC Anderlecht.
Lord-Mears previously played at this level for Sheffield FC before her recent stint playing in the Belgian Super League.
Donnelly believes the forward has already shown she has a lot to offer the team.
“I’ve known Rhema for a few years now, I saw her play at Sheffield FC,” the Rovers boss commented.
“She’s been abroad for the last year playing in Belgium. Now she’s come back and really impressed over pre-season.”
Donnelly can’t wait to see her in competitive action for Rovers.
“She’s got such quick feet, she’s left-footed and she adds something different in that she’s tenacious and an attack-minded forward player.
“I think she’ll work really well with the rest of the team.
“She wants to get her head down and do well and prove herself at this level so I’m excited to welcome her.”
