Hobbs signs new Donny deal

Hobbs signs new Donny deal - 11 Dec 2015 - Women's Football NewsDoncaster Rovers Belles will be in safe hands next season - after No1 shot stopper Nicola Hobbs extended her stay with the club. 
Goalkeeper Hobbs, an ever-present in Glen Harris's promotion winning side this season, has put pen to paper to sign a two-year contract with an option of a further year.
The 28-year-old has told the club's official website that she could not be happier to commit her future to a team she returned to in 2013 following a spell at Lincoln Ladies.
"I'm delighted, really happy. It's a bit of relief too because I've known for a long time that the Belles are the club for me," said Hobbs who clinched ten clean sheets in all competitions during the successful 2015 campaign.
"I live in Yorkshire, work here and do a bit of coaching work around here too so it feels a little bit like home even though I'm not from Yorkshire originally.
"I enjoy it here, it's got a good club atmosphere, they look after you and treat you as one of their own.
"I wouldn't like to go to a club and feel like an outsider and try to fit in. I fit in here so I'm happy to stay."
Hobbs' contract means she can remain as a firefighter for South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue but also train more at the Belles' state-of-the-art facility in Doncaster.
"It becomes a lot harder for me, but easier at the same time. Obviously, I'll need to commit more (hours into training). But I have signed a contract because I want to train more - not because I have to train more - but because I want to be better, stronger and fitter as a goalkeeper," said the Sheffield keeper.
"It means I'll put more nights in (at work) which will be hard but at the same time I can now train during the day - an option I didn't have before. I'll be able to fit in four or five training sessions a week now as opposed to one or two like last season."
On the signing of Hobbs, Sheila Edmunds, Belles' Club President and General Manager, added: "It's fantastic. I've known Nic for quite some years and certainly over the last one or two seasons one of the biggest strengths we've had is our defence and that includes Nic.
"It's massive to keep the nucleus of your team because they know how they work together and even if we bring in a few additions, the nucleus embraces the newcomers and Nic's great for doing that."
Hobbs becomes Belles' fifth player to sign a contract during the close season - following in the footsteps of Ashleigh Mills, Sophie Barker and Emily Simpkins as well as returning striker, Jess Sigsworth.
