Fletcher joined Blackburn Rovers in January 2019 from FA Women’s Championship club Leicester City. The player went on to help the club over the line in the FA Women’s National League Northern Premier Division promotion race before making nine appearances for Rovers in the second tier last season as they recorded a respectable seventh-place finish. The defender netted in her side’s 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace at The Sir Tom Finney Stadium back in November.
After spending her early years in the Manchester United Centre of Excellence, Fletcher made the switch to Manchester City who she regularly represented at Development Squad level. A move to Liverpool followed before she joined Leicester City. The player also has international experience at various youth levels for England.
Fletcher is expected to be fielded in a midfield role for new club Huddersfield Town.
