London, June 4 (IANS) Rhiannon Roberts has signed a new contract with Liverpool FC Women, the club has announced.
The Welsh international was a regular in the middle of the park for Liverpool last season and has now committed her future to the club by agreeing an extended deal.
She joined Liverpool in July 2018 and has made 27 appearances in her two seasons with the club, while gaining 29 international caps.
Roberts was part of the Liverpool side that turned out in front of 23,500 fans at Anfield for a Merseyside derby last season, and she had a special word for the club’s supporters.
“I’m absolutely delighted to extend my stay at Liverpool,” Roberts said in an official statement. “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.”
The COVID-19 pandemic brought a premature end to the Women’s Super League season and Roberts acknowledged the impact it has had on so many people.
The 29-year-old 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.”
