Flint started her career within the Centre of Excellence at Manchester United before she joined The Red Devils’ city rivals Manchester City. The striker was a regular in the Manchester City side during their early days as a professional club and Flint was an FA Women’s Continental Tyres Cup winner with the blue side of the city in 2014.
After leaving Manchester City, Flint featured for AFC Fylde, Notts County and Sheffield FC before joining her latest club in 2017. The player has since helped Blackburn Rovers to promotion to the second tier while her goals this season have been hugely important in Gemma Donnelly’s side securing their FA Women’s Championship status for another year.
