Casey Stoney has agreed a new contract with Manchester United Women in a move that sees her commit her future to the club until at least 2022.
Stoney, who became the Head Coach of the newly-formed Manchester United Women in June 2018, led the team to success by finishing the 2018/19 season as champions of The FA Women’s Championship, resulting in promotion to the Women’s Super League.
Casey Stoney said: “I am extremely proud to be involved with Manchester United and I’m honoured to be head coach of such an incredibly hard working and talented team. I’d like to thank the club for the fantastic support they have given me since we started this journey and for the trust in what we are building here.”
“I’d like to mention the fans, whose support has been incredible. Our job is to put on performances for them and keep them coming back week after week, and they continue to do so in their numbers singing loud and proud from the stands.”
”Lastly I must give thanks to my players and staff for the high standards we have set during the last 16 months both on and off the pitch. We have a special group that epitomise the values of Manchester United, and there is a hugely exciting future ahead.”
MUFC’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward said: “I am delighted that Casey has committed her future to the club; what she has achieved already in such a short space of time has been hugely impressive. Building a team from scratch and gaining promotion to the Women’s Super League at the first attempt was outstanding.
“Casey’s professionalism and commitment to her role as Head Coach is second to none and is reflected in the team’s performances and results this season. She has also built on the success of the Girls’ Regional Talent Club and has continued our philosophy of creating a pathway from academy to first team.”
