Belles sign Katie Holtham - 12 Nov 2010 - Women's Football NewsDoncaster Rovers Belles are delighted to announce the signing of England international midfielder Katie Holtham from W-League club Buffalo Flash.
 
24-year-old Katie moves to South Yorkshire after a brief spell with Buffalo Flash over the summer, helping the club clinch the W-League championship.
 
Katie had been instrumental for Yorkshire rivals Leeds Carnegie over the last three years, scoring the opening goal in last season's FA Women's Premier League Cup final win over Everton in February, helping Leeds to their first silverware of the club's history.
 
Katie has also played in two FA Women's Cup finals both at the City Ground in her home town of Nottingham, losing out 4-1 to Arsenal on both occasions with Leeds in 2007 and Charlton in 2006, this was despite her opening the scoring after two minutes for the Addicks before a record crowd of 24,529.
 
The talented midfielder had joined Leeds in 2007 when Charlton Athletic FC scrapped their women's team after being relegated from the men's FA Premier League. Holtham had joined Charlton in from Bristol Rovers in 2006.
 
Holtham, a box to box midfielder has represented England at Under-17, U19, U21 and U23 level but she is still waiting to make her full international debut despite being called up to the senior squad on several occasions, including being named in Hope Powell's provisional 30-player squad ahead of the 2007 World Cup.
 
Katie said: "After talking to John [Buckley] and Paul [Green] and listening to the plans they've got for the Belles, I decided that I wanted to be a part of that.
 
"The history of the Belles makes them a special club to play for and I'm looking forward to playing at the Keepmoat Stadium.
 
"With the players we already have at the club and a few more additions, I think we can look forward to achieving some good things."
 
Belles manager John Buckley said of his new capture: "Katie's a really creative player who makes things happen. I'm delighted she's chosen to sign for us.
 
"What Katie's got is a really good football brain, she understands the game. She's exactly the type of character we need if we're looking to improve and I'm sure she'll be a very important player for us." Photo - Liz Mockler
