Durham Women FC are delighted to confirm that Megan Borthwick will remain with the club for the 2021/22 season.
The stopper joined the club from Newcastle United in 2016 and has since established herself as a reliable presence between the sticks.
Indeed, Borthwick was a regular for the club during the 2020/21 season – featuring in every league game while jointly winning the FA Women’s Championship Golden Glove award in the process.
And with the new campaign on the horizon, the goalkeeper is targeting further progression on the field.
“I can’t wait for the new season to begin,” said Borthwick.
“To be staying at Durham for the upcoming season is something I’m extremely happy with. I feel that the club and everyone involved is working towards something special and I want to be a part of that.
“The way the club and the coaches have developed not only my goalkeeping ability but who I am as a person over the past few years is something I will be eternally grateful for, and I can’t wait to continue that development at Durham.
“I’m really thankful I have been given the opportunity to do that.
“We have a great group of girls here and I have no doubt that there is far more to come.
“Personally I am looking forward to getting back with the girls and to getting started.”
Borthwick is also looking forward to reuniting with the club’s supporters when they are permitted to return to Maiden Castle.
“I can’t wait to have fan back in the ground with us next season,” she added.
“For me, it’s great knowing that throughout the game when you need that little boost to keep you going, the fans will be there to help with that.
“We will be be able to hear the fans shouting and cheering and that’s something I’ve missed this season, so I can’t wait to be able to experience that again.”
Commenting on the retention of the stopper, manager Lee Sanders said: “This is a fantastic re-signing for the club.
“Megan has worked her way to the number one slot over the last few seasons and deserved the recognition she’s had with the Golden Glove this season.
“We’re delighted she’ll be with us again next season.”
