Durham Women are delighted to announce that Mollie Lambert has signed a new contract with the club.
The midfielder, who has previously played for Newcastle United and Sunderland, joined the club ahead of the 2020/21 season.
And she has gone on to become a regular in the side, making 52 appearances for Durham over the course of the last two campaigns – scoring five times in the process.
Four of those goals came last season with one of them, Lambert’s fine strike away at Sunderland, winning the league’s Goal of the Season award.
And having now committed herself to Durham for the future, Lambert is relishing the chance to train in a full-time environment.
“I’m very pleased to be part of the club next season and I want to be part of this team in out attempt to reach the goal of promotion,” she said.
“After a season that didn’t really go our way last year, I think it’s even more important to stay at the club and fix those things that went wrong.
“Being a full-time footballer is something I’ve wanted to do for so long, and the fact it’s happening with Durham it’s just amazing. Not only for me, but for the North East too. It’s exciting times ahead for this club and football around here.”
Lambert is also excited at the prospect of another season playing in front of the Durham support, who came out in numbers both home and away last season.
Indeed, tickets have already been flying out for the club’s opening day fixture with Sunderland – with another sell-out expected.
“I can’t wait to see them and hearing them cheering us on,” said Lambert of the supporters.
“They make a huge impact to our game home and away and we can’t wait to see them all again.”
