Former Blackburn Rovers forward deserving of another top flight opportunity?

Former Blackburn Rovers forward Natasha Flint is on the move this summer after opting to leave the Sir Tom Finney Stadium.

The 23-year-old announced her Rovers departure last week after spending the last three years with the Lancashire club.

Flint could find her services in much demand this summer after netting six goals in just nine FA Women’s Championship appearances for Rovers this season while it should be noted just how impressive some of her strikes have been. Flint will be a huge loss for Blackburn Rovers after netting 70 goals in 66 appearances for the club. The standard of the forward’s finishing, particularly in 2019/2020, has oozed real class and players of her ability and hard to find.

With Flint now free to speak to other clubs, you have to wonder where she will be playing her football next season. The striker could undoubtedly play for a side chasing promotion to the Barclays FA Women’s Super League but is she ready to go one further and have another shot at the top flight?

Flint started out at Manchester City where she netted a couple of top flight goals before going on to represent AFC Fylde, Notts County and Sheffield FC in short spells. The player has worked hard to help latest club Blackburn Rovers enjoy plenty of success in recent seasons and Flint now deserves a chance to test herself back at the top level once again. Her build and niche playing style offers clubs something different which is not commonly seen in the women’s game. She could be a real asset to a club in the Barclays FA Women’s Super League who are willing to take a chance on her.
