Doncaster Rovers Belles are delighted to announce the signing of centre back Amy Turner.
Tough tackling Turner returns to South Yorkshire after living in America, much to the delight of Belles boss John Buckley.
The 19-year-old defender departed Doncaster in 2009 to take up a sports scholarship at Hofstra University in the United States. However Buckley has moved swiftly to snap up Turner for a second time as he continues to rebuild his squad in preparation for next year's FA WSL.
Buckley said: "Obviously Amy was with us before and we're delighted to bring her back to the Belles. She's a top player.
"She's been out in America for almost two years and she's learnt a lot about the game while she's been out there.
"We've kept in touch with her while she's been away and she was very keen to come back and play for us in the FA WSL."
Turner first signed for the Belles from Sheffield United, along with Nat Shaw and Jess Hunt, in the summer of 2007. She quickly carved a reputation as a no-nonsense centre back with a fantastic ability in the air.
The teenager became almost an ever present in Buckley's first team and played a key role in the Belles' 2009 FA Premier League Cup exploits, as the club eventually lost out in the final to all conquering Arsenal.
Sheffield-born Amy has been involved with the England Under-15 and Under-17 squads and the Belles have high hopes that she can go on gain full international honours.
