Having signed for Doncaster Rovers Belles in the summer, Tanya Rich's hopes of establishing a regular starting place did not materialise and she joined South Yorkshire neighbours Sheffield Wednesday this week.
Tanya scored freely, finishing with 49 goals last season when she captained Leeds United (now Carnegie) reserves to the FA Tesco Women's Premier League Reserve Section Midlands/North Division One title, but Carla Cantrell joining Leeds from Belles in the summer did not help her prospects of establishing herself at Leeds.
Rich was one of several players signed by Belles last summer. Steph Barraclough and Sara Dickens both left early in the season, while both Chelsea Weston and Rachel Williams have proved very successful signings for manager John Buckley.
Unfortunately for Tanya, she was not able to establish a regular starting place in the Belles first team for whom she scored twice, both in the 6-1 Premier League Cup win at Tranmere Rovers. Belles have, of course, since gone on to reach the Final and one downside to her move is that she will miss the game against Arsenal at Scunthorpe on 26th February.
Rich will be hoping to make the same impact for Wednesday that Frankie Waller did when she joined from Belles a year ago. Certainly Wednesday will want her to rediscover her scoring prowess as they bid to lift themselves off of the bottom of the table in the Northern Division.
There is a strong possibility of Tanya Rich facing Belles in two months time as both Wednesday and Belles are favourites to win their ties in this weekend's (weather permitting) Sheffield & Hallamshire County FA Women's Challenge Cup semi-finals. Wednesday visit Sheffield United Community and Belles are at Keepmoat with the Final on 19th April.
