Marie signs on at Belles

Marie signs on at Belles - 20 Nov 2009 - Women's Football NewsDoncaster Rovers Belles are delighted to announce the signing of England Under-23 goalkeeper Marie Hourihan from Watford as a replacement for Nicola Hobbs, who has joined Everton.
The 22-year-old moves to South Yorkshire from fellow FA Tesco Premier League side Watford, with whom she has been with for the last two years. Marie returned to Watford in 2008 after a season in the top flight with Fulham. She also had a spell with Spartans in the Scottish Women's Premier League at the end of last season.
Her experiences in that season, combined with her dedication and effort in training, resulted to her returning as a confident and developed goalkeeper who had clearly added to her already growing abilities.
Marie has been called into several England Under 19/23 training camps and has since added to those experiences with caps for the Under-23's in the prestigious Nordic and La Manga competitions.
She will now be hoping to build on those call up's and break in to the full England set up in the near future. "I'm delighted to be joining the Rovers Belles, they are a good side who did very well last season coming fourth in the league and getting to the League Cup Final," she said.
"I have really enjoyed my time at Watford but now feel ready for this new chapter in my career. Doncaster are an ambitious club who have an eye on playing in the Super League. My aim is to be part of that and help the squad achieve their goals.
"Doncaster have a great set of players, some of whom I've known for a while, and I'm really looking forward to this new challenge."
Rovers Belles Manager John Buckley added: "Marie is a very good keeper with good pedigree. She has presence, a lot of quality and a fantastic attitude and desire to be successful in the game. She has always done well against us whilst at both Fulham and Watford in the past.
"When the chance to bring her in arose we decided to go for it. Marie is very ambitious and I'm sure that she will prove to be a good acquisition for the club."
Marie was due to make her Rovers Belles bow in the home league game against Sunderland on Wednesday evening but the game fell foul of the weather. Therefore she looks likely to debut on Sunday away at league leaders Chelsea.
