SAFC Women: Danielle Brown rejoins the Lasses

Sunderland AFC Women is delighted to confirm the signing of Danielle Brown from Durham Women.


The forward returns to Wearside having initially represented the club as a youngster, and signs a two-year deal for an undisclosed fee.


Brown bolsters Mel Reay’s squad as another player with crucial Championship experience, having featured as a trialist in recent pre-season matches for the Lasses.


Upon completing the move back to red and white, Brown said: “I’m absolutely delighted to be back here at Sunderland and especially with Mel and Steph, exceptional coaches who I have loved playing for previously.


“I feel like as a player I have matured a lot since being here before, so I can bring a lot more to the team and bring experience at this level whilst continuing to learn.


“My previous time at Sunderland saw me more in a defensive role, but I have been far more attacking since and I feel like I bring speed, skill and goal contributions to the side.”


SAFC Women General Manager Alex Clark echoed the delight to secure Brown’s return: “It’s vitally important to bring a player of Danielle’s stature to the squad.


“She’s a young player but still one with plenty of experience at this level – she knows the club, the league and the coaching staff, so she can be a really good acquisition.”


Brown will wear the number 10 shirt for the Lasses during the 2022-23 season. The deal is subject to all regulatory processes.
