Crystal Palace Women have taken up options to extend the contracts of five players ahead of the 2020-21 FA Women’s Championship campaign.
Last season’s joint-second highest scorer for the club, Amber Stobbs and Palace’s only ever-present player in 2019-20, Amy Goddard, are two of the five, along with Cherelle Khassal, Leeta Rutherford and Amber Gaylor.
Eagles’ boss Dean Davenport told cpfc.co.uk: “Extending the contracts of the five that we have is great news for the club. This current side we are building is the potentially the best I’ve managed during my time here, and that will only improve the longer we can keep the squad together.
“All five have made a quick and impressive impact – they understand and fit the club’s ethos perfectly.
“With a season under their belts at Palace, I have no doubt that our next campaign will see all of them go from strength to strength.”
