Sheffield United have signed midfielder Rachel Brown from FA Women’s National League side Nottingham Forest.
The 21-year-old enjoyed a great season in the third-tier last time out, hitting double figures with 11 goals during her second season with Forest.
Brown said: “I’m really excited. I’ve been in talks for a few weeks now and I’m just really excited to get into pre-season and get the season going.
“I’ve played in this league before and I feel it’s the right time for me now to step back up. Sheffield United is a good club with good players and I’m looking forward to being part of that environment.”
Head coach Neil Redfearn said: “What Rachel does is add another young player and another coming with great references. She had a great year for Forest, has an eye for goal and she offers us real competition in the midfield.
“We have a really strong midfield, but we’re on the front foot now with replacing Kasia [Lipka] and Rachel has that ability to make an impact.”
