Durham full-back Kathryn Hill has opted to extend her contract with the club ahead of the new season according to reports on The Wildcats’ official website.
The 26-year-old former Scottish youth international has been with the FA Women’s Championship club since 2017 and Hill has gone on to be a regular in Lee Sanders’ side.
Hill is the latest member of Durham’s backline to extend her contract for the coming season. The player joins fellow defensive colleagues Sarah Wilson, Becky Salicki and Ellie Christon in signing on at New Ferens Park. Hill’s new deal was revealed on Durham’s official Twitter account this evening.

Durham’s number two joined the club following a spell playing in America with Old Dominion University. Hill can play at right-back or at the heart of the defence, offering manager Sanders plenty of versatility.
Last season saw the defender appear in 13 of Durham’s 14 fixtures in the FA Women’s Championship. Hill’s only league goal came in the 3-2 victory over Coventry United at the Butts Park Arena. Only Ellie Christon and Sarah Robson made more appearances than Hill in all competitions for Durham last season.
Seven members of Durham’s squad from 2019/2020 have now extended their contracts for the upcoming campaign while manager Sanders has added Sunderland pair Mollie Lambert and Bridget Galloway to his group.
