Welsh international Rhiannon Roberts was a regular in the middle of the park for Liverpool FC Women last season and has now committed her future to the club by agreeing an extended deal.
The 29-year-old told liverpoolfc.com: “I’m absolutely delighted to extend my stay at Liverpool. It’s a big club to be a part of and I’ve always wanted to be here and stay here, so I can’t wait to get started again and start preparations for next season.”
She continued: “It’s been tough for everybody at the minute. I had my wedding cancelled and it is quite a stressful time for a lot of people, so to get this over the line I’m really happy.”
Manager Vicky Jepson explained why Roberts is such a valuable member of her squad.
“We’re excited to announce Rhiannon Roberts is re-signing,” Jepson said. “Razza is a valuable part of our Liverpool team, she’s a great person and a true leader through her passion, work-rate and commitment to the badge.
“She has a wonderful ability to lift the performances of others through the energy she brings on the field – someone we were keen to offer a new contract to and retain in order to continue strengthening our team for next season.”
