City on Young:

Droylsden-born forward Danielle Young rejoined City in January 2014 after a brief spell with Blackburn Rovers Ladies.

Young, who joined City in 2006 after a stint at Denton Town, made her competitive debut for the Blues aged just 15.

She went on to become an integral part of the side – notably playing a key role in the Championship title-winning team of 2012.

Following that triumph, Young opted for a move to Blackburn where she made an immediate impact, scoring five goals in 12 appearances for the Rovers.

Notable performances included a 2-2 away draw at Wolves and a Lancashire Cup home tie with Bolton – Young scored twice on both occasions.

The striker is well-known for her fine deliveries and her high stamina. Having been a part of the club for so long and witnessing its ups and downs first-hand, she is now looking forward to coming up against some of the country’s best players in the FA Women’s Super League.

With such a strong connection to the club, plus the desire and the ability, Young will be a vital asset to Nick Cushing’s side.
