Guiseley Bring In Emma Rankin From Blackburn

On signing, Rankin told guiseleyafc.co.uk: “The high aspirations of the club match my own.

“I am looking forward to being on the pitch with players I have played with in the past as well as new. I hope to take a leading role in this dynamic side helping develop young players who play with a passing philosophy and no fear attitude, which is how I like to play my football.

“I have the belief that with a can-do attitude we will go on to do well!”

Manager Glen Preston said: “Today is another statement of our intent. It demonstrates our unwavering ambition as a club to ensure we continue to sign some of the best players in the region and move forwards… it’s another great signing for the club.

“She will give the side pace, composure and variation. Above all that she’s a proven winner, having won the FA Women’s Premier League last season so we are getting a player with great experience and I’m really looking forward to working with her this season.”
