Durham's new signing, Rio Hardy
Durham Women have signed 25-year-old striker Rio Hardy from Coventry United for an undisclosed fee.
Hardy, who gained UEFA Women’s Champions League experience with Apollon before joining Coventry in the summer, said: “It’s great to finally be here.
“I’ve met all the girls and they’ve all been so welcoming, so I can’t wait to get started.
“Durham are always there or thereabouts at the top of the league, and that was something I was looking for.
“It’s a good fit for what I want to do and what the club wants to do.”
Head coach Lee Sanders added: “I’d like to welcome Rio to Durham on behalf of all the staff at the club.
”I’m delighted that we’ve been able to sign a player that we’ve looked at for a number of years now.
“She’s a Northern girl and understands the values that we have at the football club, and it’s an area that we identified that we do need to improve on.
“Hopefully she’ll come in and help to improve that through assisting and scoring.”
