Durham Women are delighted to announce that Lauren Briggs has signed a new contract with the club.
The 26-year-old, who can play in either defence or midfield, is rapidly closing in on making 100 appearances for the club after enjoying a stellar 2021/22 season.
Briggs featured in all 29 games for Durham last season and scored some memorable goals along the way – including the first of the campaign against Watford and then a long-range effort on the final day at Charlton Athletic.
And she’s now excited to push on in a full-time environment at Maiden Castle.
“I’m thrilled to have extended my time here,” said Briggs.
“Obviously we’ve had the opportunity to go to a full-time programme now and it’s something that I’ve always wanted to do with Durham.
“I’m really excited for the opportunity and ready to put the work in and progress on.
“I’ve been at the club since I was probably about five-years-old, so to see it transform into a full-time programme is a memory I’ll always cherish.
“All the girls were ready to come back and have put the graft in during the first week. The mood in camp is really positive and we’re ready to progress on.”
And Briggs is excited to be playing in front of Durham’s fervent support again too.
“They were monumental in games at home and away,” she added.
“We have fans come the full length of the country to support us and hopefully we can keep getting more to every game.
“When you hear those fans, it really spurs us on to work harder.”
