Reading FC Women striker Brooke Chaplen has signed a contract extension that sees her remain with the Royals until June 2022.
The 31-year-old, who joined from Sunderland in 2017, has so missed a large portion of the 2020-21 campaign through illness but her return to the field is keenly awaited.
Manager Kelly Chambers told readingfc.co.uk: “I am very excited to keep Brooke at Reading. Brooke has had a huge impact at the club, and she has been truly missed on the pitch this season. Brooke is a player that has a clear understanding of the way we play and that has shown in her previous season records.
It’s been an extremely frustrating season for Brooke, but she is working really hard to return and is doing really well, I can’t wait to have her back.”
