Durham have signed 24-year-old New Zealand international forward Hannah Blake from A-League side Adelaide United.

The attacker represented New Zealand at the U-20 World Cup and was also part of her nation’s training camp ahead for the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup.

Blake told durhamwfc.co.uk“It’s a bit surreal – coming from the other side of the world.

“I’m really excited to be playing in England. Playing in the Championship has been an aspiration of mine for a while now and I’m excited to take that next step.

“Durham is a great club and coming and meeting everyone made me sure that this is somewhere I can play good football.

“It was important to me to choose an environment where I can feel at home and seeing what the club has to offer, I know this is the place to achieve what I want to achieve.”
