Rainhill Rockets FC are sad to announce that one of our U16 goalkeepers, Kate Donnelly has been forced to retire from football due to injuries.
She joined Rainhill Rockets FC when the girls team moved in the summer. She picked up a serious injury in the first game of the season, recovered only to get injured again in training. She returned from that injury only to badly dislocate her shoulder in the County Cup game against Tranmere.
Her manager Barry Henshaw said "I have worked with Kate since the U10 age group and have seen her improvement as a goalkeeper season on season. To watch her development has been a pleasure as her coach, and I hope she is able to return to sports some time in the future"
Rainhill Rockets Football Club would like to like to thank Kate for her service to the club and wish Kate all the very best for the future.
