West Ham United Women’s 23-year-old defender Grace Fisk has extended her contract with the Hammers until 2023.

Fisk was ever-present for West Ham in the Barclays FA WSL in 2020/21, which was her first season as a professional.

She told whufc.co.uk: “I’m really happy to be extending my stay here at West Ham – I’m really excited for the upcoming season! There’s going to be a lot of changes, but that is also exciting and will improve the team for next season.

“One of the main reasons that I wanted to stay here is because I’ve had the opportunity to play week in week out – whoever the coach has been has put a lot of trust in me. The most important thing for me as a player in my development is that I’m playing regularly, so it was an easy decision to sign up for another two years.”

“The aim next season is to be nowhere near a relegation battle – we want to be looking at the other end of the table, pushing those teams near the top. We showed towards the end of this season that we can compete against the very best in the WSL, now it’s about taking that next step and being capable of taking points off of those teams.”

Head coach Olli Harder commented: “We see Grace as somebody who has the potential future with the English National Team. She has a selfless attitude and is someone that strives every day to become the best version of herself. She is a great role model to our younger fan base an epitomises the values, attitudes and behaviours we wish from those who represent our football club.”
