Grace Moloney has signed a two-year contract extension with Reading FC Women, that sees her stay with the Royals until at least June 2023.

Moloney has been with Reading since the age of 9, other than having a season on loan at Aston Villa in 2016, before establishing herself as the Royals’ first-choice keeper.

Manager Kelly Chambers told readingfc.co.uk: “Grace has always been a big part of the club and to keep her for another two years on top of how long she’s been here already, shows great loyalty from both sides, which is something that is very rare in the game.

“I believe, this season, Grace’s performances have been some of her best. She has been one of the very best keepers in the league. What excites me is that she wants to get better, so I know that we haven’t seen the best of her yet.”
