NEWS: Skipper Sarah Wilson Stays

Durham Women FC are delighted to announce that Sarah Wilson has agreed to remain with the club until 2023.

The club’s captain will remain at Maiden Castle for the 2021/22 season and beyond as the club look to rebuild on a successful season.

A near ever-present in the side throughout our record-breaking 2020/21 season, Wilson was a key part of the defence that registered the joint-best defensive record in the second tier.

And on a personal note, the skipper became only the second player in the club’s history to hit the 150 appearance landmark – having racked-up a healthy number of games since joining the side in 2014.

With the new campaign now on the horizon, Wilson sees a bright future for the club.

“I can’t wait to get going again for the 2021/22 season,” she said.

“I’m so proud to be part of the club and really grateful to have the opportunity to play here. I can’t wait to get started. 

“We keep on getting stronger every season and I’m fully confident that we can go all the way. We had an incredible season, our best to date. 

“I know we have more to give as a group and it’s really exciting to see what we can achieve together.”

The captain also once again paid tribute to the club’s loyal supporters, who are set to return to Maiden Castle in time for the 2021/22 campaign kicking-off.

“I can’t wait to be back playing in front of our fans,” added Wilson.

“We really missed them last season, and although we felt their support from a distance, nothing beats actually being able to see them in person.”

After seeing his skipper put pen to paper, manager Lee Sanders said: “Sarah is such an important player and leader within the team.

“She lives and breathes the culture of the club, is a role model to her peers in the team – and no doubt in the league itself – and we’re delighted she will be spending a few more years here.”

Sarah Wilson 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! For more information, email
