Durham Women FC are delighted to announce that captain Sarah Wilson has committed her future to the club.
The centre back, who joined the Wildcats in 2014, is one of only three players to have made over 100 appearances for the club – having been a regular in the first team squad since her arrival from Newcastle United.
A key figure on and off the field, Wilson’s presence has helped Durham establish themselves as regular contenders in the second tier.
As well as maintaining the club’s fine defensive record, the no-nonsense centre back has also nine goals for the Wildcats – including some vital strikes.
And while injury ruled her out for much of the 2019/20 campaign, Wilson is raring to go ahead of the new FA Women’s Championship campaign.
“I’m really looking forward to getting back onto the pitch with the girls, and I’m delighted to be staying,” she said.
“I can’t wait to be back in front of the fans. The support has been incredible and we hope we can see them all very soon.”
Manager Lee Sanders was delighted to see his captain commit for the future.
“Sarah has shown tremendous character and how much playing with the team means to her over the last 12 months after suffering an injury that has set her back a couple of times,” he said.
“But with tremendous support from Nat, our physio, and the support and medical team we have at the club, she’s now on the way back and we are delighted she’s committing to a future with us.
“With the rest of our defensive unit she’s the platform for others to go on and express themselves in games.
“She’s a true professional in everything she does, works tremendously hard away from the pitch, and the staff and myself are looking forward to working with her again in 2020/21.”
