FA Women’s Championship club Blackburn Rovers have completed the signing of midfielder Hope Knight on dual registration contract terms from Sheffield FC according to reports on the club’s official website.
The 24-year-old Hull-born midfielder is primarily a winger but can also operate in attack should she be required to do so.
It has been reported that Knight has signed dual registration terms with Blackburn Rovers until the end of the current season. The player will be eligible to feature for Rovers should the FA Women’s Championship resume while primary club Sheffield FC also have the option to call upon Knight’s services when required.
The midfielder is in her second season at The Home of Football Stadium with Knight having joined Sheffield FC in summer 2019. The player can count Notts County and Doncaster Rovers Belles amongst her previous clubs.
Blackburn Rovers find themselves sitting in seventh position in the FA Women’s Championship table in what is their first season at that level. Gemma Donnelly’s side are currently three points clear of bottom club Charlton Athletic after 12 games. At this stage, it is unknown whether the FA Women’s Championship will be able to resume with the UK having been heavily hit by the Coronavirus crisis.
