Lincoln City have today landed the biggest and most significant signing in the history of their club.
England goalkeeper and former Blackburn Rovers player Kay Hawke has today put pen to paper and signed a contract to play for Lincoln City during the 2007-08 season. Kay's contract has been made possible by the generous sponsorship of Ray Trew and SportsTV, who has pledged up to £10,000 of extra money - over and above SportsTV's annual £8,000 regular sponsorship - to bring outside talent into the club in order to aid the Lady Imps' push for promotion this season.
According to Lincoln City Ladies Chairman Geoff Adams, following the loss of England Under-23 international keeper Nicola Hobbs to Leeds Utd, it was imperative for Lincoln to secure another world class goalkeeper this season if his side is to mount a serious challenge for the Northern Division title.
"I cannot express strongly enough how delighted I, and the whole of Lincoln City Ladies F.C. are, to have brought Kay Hawke to our club for the coming season," said Adams. "It's my opinion that Kay is certainly one of the three best goalkeepers in the country, and this signing will surely add massive weight to our title challenge this season.
"We have a very strong squad all over the pitch this season and we are delighted by the return to form of last season's injured players Kerry Smith and Kirsty Richardson, who have worked their way back to fitness and into the starting line up of the first team. But the signing of a player of the proven quality of Kay must be the icing on the cake for Lincoln this season," he added.
"Her sheer presence and quality in goal plus the experience and organisational ability she will bring to our defence as a whole is, in my opinion, what makes this such a special and significant signing for the Lady Imps this season."
