Gillingham striker Natalie Crinean has committed her future to the club by turning down approaches from Chelsea and Millwall Lionesses.
The 19-year-old has just started to find her goalscoring form once more and scored a fantastic header against QPR last weekend for the Gills.
Talking about why she wanted to stay with the Gills, Nat said: "Everything just seems to be getting better at the Gills. It is such a great club to be a part of, and so long as I am enjoying playing for the club I shall stay right where I am."
"I know in recent weeks things have not gone our way in terms of results, but that just encourages the squad, the staff and the Club as a whole to grow. Despite all the points we have dropped, the morale and determination throughout has continued to grow, and I personally think that is priceless.
"I have been part of a few clubs, and I can honestly say, I have never been happier, even when I have been part of a winning side. There is a lot of stuff off the pitch that happens at Gills, that makes it in my opinion the best Club in the South East.
"After being approached by Chelsea and Millwall to say I felt flattered would be an understatement, both have a great set up great facilities and most of all great squads. So to even be considered for either was a privilege. However, with all due respect, I cannot imagine enjoying playing anywhere as much as I enjoy it at the Gills.
"The Gills are the most exciting women's team around. With so many ideas, ambitions and goals, what more could a young player like me want than to experience great success and plenty of silverware in the near future than with her local club."
Manager Ian Varley was clearly delighted that one of his star players has decided to stay with the Club and help push them forward. He said: "I am delighted that Nat has decided to stay as she is a very important player for us. Her form of late has been excellent and it is no surprise an offer like this has come in.
"Again it is a massive compliment to the Club and the players we have that Nat is turning down a team in a higher division."
