Northern Irish international midfielder extends at Durham

Northern Irish international midfielder Sarah Robson has signed a contract extension with FA Women’s Championship club Durham according to reports on The Wildcats’ official website.

The 33-year-old is an important member of Lee Sanders’ squad with the player having spent the last four years at New Ferens Park.

With the new season potentially less than two months away, Robson has handed Durham a further boost by agreeing a contract extension. The player joins Emily Roberts, Nicki Gears, Sarah Wilson, Becky Salicki, Beth Hepple, Ellie Christon and Kathryn Hill in signing on with The Wildcats for the new season.

Robson joined Durham from neighbours Sunderland in 2016 and the player has gone on to make 86 appearances for the club in all competitions. The midfielder was an ever-present for Sanders’ side in the FA Women’s Championship last season prior to the campaign being brought to a premature end. Robson netted goals in home victories over Crystal Palace and London Bees.

After starting her career across the water in Northern Ireland, Robson spent a time playing in Iceland. She represented  Fylkir and Grindavik before enjoying a lengthy spell at Sunderland. The player has settled well into life in the North East with Robson going on to join Durham where she has been equally as successful.
