Canadian international goalkeeper Rylee Foster has signed a new long-term contract with Liverpool FC Women, after joining from West Virginia University just over a year ago.

The 22-year-old, who has been called up to the Canada national senior squad for the first time, made her league debut for Liverpool last weekend, having previously played only in cup ties.

Interim manager Amber Whiteley told liverpoolfc.com: “It’s fantastic news. Rylee’s been a key part of the squad since day one. She has enormous potential and we can’t wait to see what’s in store for Rylee in the future. She is certainly going to help drive this team and this club forward.

“She’s a fantastic character to have both on and off the pitch, she brings a tremendous energy to our team and she’s really supportive of those around her. Our GK union is so strong.”

Foster said: “It’s so exciting. To have another contract with the club I love is an honour.

“Knowing that the club trusts in me and has a vision for me to go forward here, it was a no-brainer opportunity for me to be a part of a group that’s going to build forward momentum.”
