Women's Football News
Reading FC Women have been boosted by the news that two members of their squad have pledged their immediate futures with the club.
Defender Harriet Scott (pictured) has signed a new 18-month deal with the Royals, a new full time professional contract until 2018. Scott, 23, has spent 15 years at the club after joining the club's academy at the age of eight.
On signing the new deal, Scott said: "I am absolutely delighted to have signed a new deal with my childhood club. Last year was my first season as a professional footballer and I can't wait to develop further this season.
"Professional football was not something I thought a possibility when I came through Reading, but I'm so grateful for the opportunity to work hard for the team again this year. We've got some brilliant new signings this season and I can't wait to push on to the fixtures and improve upon last season."
Manager Kelly Chambers added: "I'm really pleased Harriet has signed a new contact, her work ethic and tenacity adds a great dimension to our defence. She's been at the club 15 years now which speaks volumes about her hard work and attitude, she's still young and I'm looking forward to seeing her develop over the coming seasons."
Royals captain Kirsty McGee has also signed a new contract until June 2018, keeping her at the club for the Spring Series and the following winter 2017-2018 season.
McGee, who didn't play for a football team until she was 16, joined Reading in 2014 after a decade spent with Portsmouth Ladies FC. The 29-year-old defender joins Mary Earps, Lauren Burton, Becky Jane, Charlie Estcourt and Melissa Fletcher in extending her stay at Reading.
McGee said: "I'm really grateful to have been given the opportunity to continue my full time career at a club where there is massive ambitions for the future. I feel it's a really exciting time to be at the club, especially with the signings that we've made, and to build on the foundations we laid last season."
Kelly Chambers commented: "I am really pleased that Kirsty has signed a new deal with us. Kirsty is a fantastic role model and has had a real impact on the success of the team over the last few seasons. She is an experienced player in the game and is a true professional and one who is still hungry to develop. I'm glad I will still get to work with her over the coming seasons."
