Liverpool FC Women’s vice-captain Niamh Fahey extends her stay at the club, whom she intends to help bounce straight back after their relegation was confirmed last week.

“I’m just really happy to commit my future to the club,” the 32-year-old told Liverpoolfc.com. “It’s a club I grew up supporting, so I was more than happy to stay and it’s my passion. So I’m just over the moon, delighted.”

Left bottom of the table on points per game when the season was cut short, Fahey added: “We would have liked the opportunity to fight our way out of that situation but that wasn’t to be, so we just have to accept what is now and to bounce back as quickly as possible and back to where we should be in the WSL.”

Manager Vicky Jepson spoke of her delight at securing Fahey’s signature.

“Niamh Fahey is Liverpool through and through,” Jepson said. “I’m personally delighted to have Niamh with us as our vice-captain, to help lead the players and be an integral part of our journey.

“She understands what wearing the Liverpool badge means to our fans and wears it with honour. Going through these tough times, a leader like Niamh is invaluable in your squad.

“The experience she brings from playing in the top flight of the women’s game for many years, with her international experience on top of that, stands out in training and on matchday.”
