Durham defender agrees new one-year deal

Durham have this evening announced via their official website that defender Becky Salicki has agreed a new one-year contract with the club.

The 27-year-old has spent the last four years with The Wildcats after moving to New Ferens Park from Sunderland in 2016.

Salicki is a key member of Lee Sanders’ Durham squad and the club have revealed that the player has agreed a contract extension for the coming season.

The defender was an ever-present for Durham in the FA Women’s Championship last season as The Wildcats recorded a respectable third-place finish. Salacki played single every minute of Durham’s 14 league matches, helping her side record five clean sheets. The player was also an asset in the opposition box. She netted in away victories at Leicester City and Crystal Palace.

Despite suffering some real bad luck with injuries in her early days as a Durham player, Salicki is quietly edging towards a century of appearances for the club. The player’s performances particularly in the last two seasons have been nothing short of top class and Salicki is quickly becoming something of a Durham legend.

After signing her new deal, Salicki told Durham official media sources “I’m so excited to be signing again for Durham.

“We’ve all been working so hard behind the scenes to make sure that we’re ready for the upcoming season so that we can push on further than we’ve ever done before.”
