Liverpool Ladies have confirmed that defender Maz Pacheco has today completed a permanent move to Doncaster Rovers Belles.

The England U19 full-back has agreed to join Emma Coates’ side after spending the second half of the 2016 season on loan with the club.

Ladies manager Scott Rogers said: “We are extremely disappointed that Maz has decided to sign for Doncaster Rovers Belles permanently.

“We did everything we could to keep Maz, as I believe she has the potential to be a top quality WSL1 full-back, but unfortunately she has decided to go back to Doncaster to get regular football in WSL2.

“However, we hope that the move works out for Maz and wish her the best of luck in her career.”
