Blackburn Rovers goalkeeper Emma Bradley has re-joined FA Women’s National League Division One North club Chorley following a successful loan spell last season.
The 19-year-old joined Blackburn Rovers last summer in what was her second spell at the club but the player was sent out on loan by manager Gemma Donnelly in a bid to get some first team experience under her belt.
Bradley enjoyed a short spell with Chorley where she impressed manager Ben Gooden and it has today been confirmed that the player is returning to the club this season. Chorley announced the news this morning via a post on their official Twitter account.
BRADDERS IS BACK! 🧤

Bradley spent her early years in Blackburn Rovers’ Regional Talent Club (RTC) before joining Barclays FA Women’s Super League club Manchester City. The keeper spent time in Manchester City’s academy system while she also benefitted from working with senior players Karen Bardsley and Ellie Roebuck.
The player made her senior debut for Blackburn Rovers in the 3-0 defeat to London City Lionesses in January while she was an unused substitute on 10 occasions.
Bradley will now be hoping to enjoy plenty of game time in the FA Women’s National League Division One North this season with new club Chorley.
