Chelsea midfielder Drew Spence has signed a new two-year contract with the club according to The Blues’ official website.
The 27-year-old Londoner was set to be out of contract at the end of the season but has now extended her current deal at Kingsmeadow until 2022.
After spending time in the youth systems at both Arsenal and Fulham, Spence joined Chelsea in 2008 and has since become the club’s longest-serving player. The midfielder is just two appearances short of 200 first team outings for the South West Londoners and she could achieve the milestone as soon as next weekend when The Blues travel to Tottenham Hotspur in the FA Women’s Super League.
During her time as a Chelsea player, Spence has won the FA Women’s Super League on two occasions along with the 2017 FA Women’s Super League Spring Series. The midfielder has also lifted the Women’s FA Cup twice.
The player was named on the bench by manager Emma Hayes for Chelsea’s recent FA Women’s Continental League Cup final tie against London rivals Arsenal. Spence was a 93rd-minute replacement for Australian international Sam Kerr as The Blues defeated The Gunners 2-1 to win the trophy for the very first time.
Spence is expected to be in the Chelsea squad when they travel to Everton for their Women’s FA Cup quarter-final tie on Sunday.
