CONTRACT: Ellie Christon Extends Durham Stay

Durham Women are delighted to confirm that Ellie Christon has signed a new contract with the club.

The full-back has been a mainstay in the side since entering the second tier in 2014 and has now amassed over 150 appearances during her time at Maiden Castle.

That landmark was hit last season during a campaign in which Christon made 27 appearances while scoring once – a fine finish to help us to victory over Lewes.

And now the popular defender is excited for the next chapter of her time with Durham, which will see her make the transition to full-time football.

“I’m thrilled and so excited,” said Christon.

“It’s a great time to be part of the club and the progress we’ve made on and off the pitch since 2014 is amazing.

“I’m so grateful to be part of the journey.

“I’ve wanted to be full-time since I started football, and now it’s possible it’s class to be doing it with Durham.

“It’s amazing to not only be a full-time footballer but to do it with my local club in the North East.”

And with the opening game of the season rapidly approaching, Christon can’t wait to be reunited with Durham’s excellent support.

“Our fans are great and they flock in their hundreds to support us.

“It’s great to feel that buzz on a game day and we’re all excited to see them against Sunderland.”
