Doncaster Rovers Belles have further shown their intent to compete with the best in FA WSL 1 following the incredible signing of England and Liverpool striker Natasha Dowie.
The 27-year-old forward, who netted 14 times for the Reds this season, has returned from a two month loan spell with Australian side Melbourne Victory in the W-League to put pen to paper and help Doncaster in their top flight return this year.
Dowie - twice an FA WSL 1 champion as well as an FA Women's Cup, FA Players' Player of the Year and Women's Super League golden boot winner - has told the club's official website she's targeting trophies with Belles.
"I'm very pleased [to sign for Doncaster]. I can now get excited and focused for the new season after signing professional terms," the prolific finisher said.
"I'm at a stage in my career where I have won a lot of things and I see Doncaster as an exciting, up and coming team with a great set up.
"I know a lot of the players and think they, as well as the staff, are great characters on and off the pitch. The offer I was given ticked all of the boxes.
"I want to win silverware. I'm a winner full stop. I've come to Doncaster to win things or to at least challenge until the end.
"I want to bring lots of goals to the club this season. I'm a hard-worker who never gives up so I hope this will be appreciated by the players and fans.
"I'm an experienced player and I'm studying to do my UEFA A (coaching) Licence this year so hope I can help develop players. I want to keep improving as a player also - I never stop wanting to learn and be better."
Having already awarded professional contracts to a handful of new arrivals and loyal Belles servants during the close season, Doncaster boss Glen Harris has said the capture of goal ace Dowie sends out a clear message to FA WSL 1 rivals.
"I am delighted to have secured the signing of Tash. She is a winner and with her ability and desire to succeed, her arrival at the club is a significant statement of intent," he said.
"This was a considered decision from Tash. We know several clubs were keen to secure her signature but we are pleased she has committed to Belles - which again, with another quality signing, sends out a strong message."
