Melissa Lawley has signed a new contract with Liverpool after helping them seal promotion back to the Barclays Women’s Super League.

The 28-year-old winger has been at the club for three seasons and was right at the top of the assists chart in the Championship last term.

Manager Matt Beard told liverpoolfc.com: “Mel was outstanding last year. A great character, on the ball fantastic.

“She came up with some goals last year and some really important assists. It’s just great to see Mel play with that smile on her face and with that freedom.

“I think Mel’s coming to the peak of her career now, and I’m excited to see what she can do back in the Super League.”

Lawley commented: “Last season was an amazing experience and I know there’s more to come from this group of girls.

“Obviously it’s going to be a challenging year, but with the group of players we’ve got and the staff behind we’ll go in as a together team, work hard and the performances will come.”
