Blackburn Rovers return for former academy midfielder

Blackburn Rovers manager Gemma Donnelly has completed her second piece of transfer business of the day with the club agreeing the return of former midfielder Hannah Walsh on an interim basis according to reports on Rovers’ official website.

The 20-year-old central midfielder came through the Rovers Centre of Excellence and graduated into the Lancashire club’s first team squad before moving to the United States for a football scholarship last summer.

It has now been reported that Walsh has returned to Blackburn Rovers on an interim basis with the player’s American scholarship having gone into a break. The midfielder will spend the remainder of the season at the Sir Tom Finney Stadium before returning to the United States.

During her time in the United States, Walsh has been playing her football with the University of the Incarnate Word Cardinals where she has scored two goals in 17 appearances.

In her first spell with Blackburn Rovers, the player won FA Women’s Premier League Reserve Northern Division title. She was also a member of the treble-winning side in 2017/2018.

Walsh joins fellow new signing Hope Knight at Blackburn Rovers. The Sheffield FC winger has sign dual registration terms with Donnelly’s side until the end of the current campaign.
