Manchester United Women’s Kirsty Hanson has signed a new contract which will keep her at the club until June 2024, with the option to extend for a further year.

The 22-year-old Scotland international joined the club in July 2018 and has made 57 appearances in all competitions, scoring 11 goals so far.

Hanson told manutd.com: “This club means so much to me; I have grown up as a United fan, played in the girls’ academy, and I’m now part of the senior side competing in one of the most competitive leagues in the women’s game, which is a dream come true.

“It makes me proud seeing the way we have developed over the last few years and I am so happy to be signing a new contract. I feel like I’m improving as a player every single day and that is down to the environment here.”

Casey Stoney said: “I’m so happy Kirsty has committed her future to the club, she is a fantastic player and character to have in our environment. Her work ethic is incredible and she is very much a student of the game.

“She is constantly looking to improve which, as a head coach, is always pleasing to see. Her strong performances at club level have resulted in regular call ups with the senior Scotland team which I know is something she is extremely proud of, so long may that continue during her time with us too.”
