Danielle Rowe becomes Pompey Ladies' third signing of the summer after completing her move to the PMC Stadium.
Danielle spent seven years at Brighton and Hove Albion, transitioning from U14’s right through to the First Team, making a total of 15 senior appearances - 10 of which during the title winning season. The 21-year-old central midfielder then had a nine month sabbatical to go travelling, and joined South Coast neighbours Lewes, on her return, for a brief spell before joining us at Pompey.
Danielle said after signing for the Blues: "I joined Pompey as it’s a club with a lot of potential and has great backing from the men’s side. I believe this club can really go places and I’d love to be a part of that. Jay, his staff and all the girls have been really welcoming and I just can’t wait for the season to get started and hopefully enjoy my football again!"
Jay Sadler is on his way to putting together his side for the 2018/19 campaign, and he said: "We have signed a fantastic player and an equally fantastic person, in Danielle. Her character and mentality will complement our current group and it will make us even stronger.
As a footballer, she is tactically aware and reads the game very well. Although still young, her past experiences - including winning the league with Brighton - will aid us, and it shows the level ambition and direction this club is going in.
The three signings we have now made gives us new opportunities and brings excitement with it. I’m sure our supporters will make them welcome at our wonderful club and in this amazing city."
You can see new signing Danielle Rowe, along with other summer signings Millie Carter and Ellie Russell, in action for the first time when Pompey Ladies travel to Maidstone United Ladies on Sunday, July 15. Kick-off 12pm.
