Durham Women FC are delighted to announce that Ellie Christon will remain with the club until 2023.
The full-back has been with the club since 2014 and is rapidly closing in on her 150th appearance for the Wildcats.
Christon enjoyed a successful 2020/21 campaign and was a key part of the defensive unit who played a major role in the Durham’s record-breaking finish.
And with the new season on the horizon, the defender is looking forward with optimism.
“It’s fantastic to be back for another season with the club and I’m very excited for the year ahead,” she said.
“I love this team and the club, so it would be amazing to see us go all the way this season and get promotion.
“I think we definitely have what it takes to do get promoted and compete against the very best every week.
“Having been with the club since the start, I would absolutely love to see the club get to the WSL.”
And with fans set to return for the beginning of the season, Christon is relishing the chance to play in front of supporters at Maiden Castle.
“It’s going to be amazing to have our fans supporting us again this season and have a bit more of an atmosphere on game day,” she added.
“We definitely missed them last season and hopefully they can play a big part in pushing us for promotion.”
Manager Lee Sanders added: “Ellie is a consummate professional and an athlete in every sense of the word”
“She is arguably the best full-back in the league and is a huge re-signing for the club.”
Ellie Christon is available to sponsor for the 2021/22 season. For just £500, businesses and individuals can benefit from a host of promotion – via our social media channels, website and match day programme – while also receiving their chosen player’s signed shirt!
