Rovers Ladies’ new signing Issy Dean says she has settled in well to life at the Club and is looking forward to the season ahead.

The 19-year-old centre-back has already linked up with her new teammates during pre-season training, as the squad prepares for the start of the Championship on 5/6 September. 

And the former Everton Academy player is enjoying the atmosphere that has been created within the squad. 

“It’s exciting times,” Dean commented. “There’s a buzz around training, you can tell everyone wants to develop and do well as a team.

“I think Everton developed me hugely from when I first joined the Development team to leaving now. 

“But I’ve heard a lot of good things about this Club so I’m excited to see where it takes me.”

Coming from Academy football, Dean admits it will be a different environment to step up into tier two of the women’s game, but it is a test she is relishing. 

“I think it will be a big challenge but hopefully I can get used to it,” she continued. “I want to establish myself in the team and get used to playing at Championship level. 

“It’s more of a physical game, which is my kind of style really. Hopefully I can bring a physical presence to the team, I also like playing out from the back as well and keeping the ball.”
