Durham Women FC are delighted to confirm that goalkeeper Megan Borthwick will remain with the club for the 2020/21 season.
The stopper initially joined the club in 2016 after a spell with Newcastle United and has gone on to become a key member of the first-team squad.
Having made 17 appearances for the Wildcats last term, Borthwick was a key component of the club’s feared defensive unit – who conceded a league low of 10 goals during the 2019/20 season.
And now the ‘keeper is looking ahead to an exciting new campaign.
“I’m very excited to be staying at Durham for another season,” she said.
“The support from the fans over the years has been fantastic and I can’t wait to get back out on the pitch with the girls.”
Manager Lee Sanders added: “Megan is just a wonderful character to have around the squad and the club in general.
“She’s proven- through her own hard work away from training also – that she’s been ready to step up and be the recognised number one last season and has produced some exceptional performances for the team.
“She’s done extra training with Chris [Sewell, coach] and we’re all reaping the benefits of that.
“I’m delighted she will be moving forward with us.”
