Reading FC Women’s Brooke Chaplen has signed a contact extension that keeps her with the Royals until June 2021.

The midfielder, who has represented England at U-19, U-20 and U-23 levels, has been at Reading since joining from Sunderland in 2017.

Chaplen told readingfc.co.uk: “It’s nice to get the contract signed early and shows that the club are keen to keep me, which is great. Obviously, I’ve had a few good years here at Reading and we’re still growing from when I first signed to now. Hopefully we can continue to press the top 3 teams, as we have done in the last few years.

Looking forward, Chaplen added: “I think it’s vital over the next season or two that we find ourselves in a cup final. We were so close last season and unfortunately I was injured when we got to the semi-final of the FA Cup against West Ham, but for this club, I think we have the talent and the players that, on their day, can take any team.”
