Durham keeper agrees contract extension for new season

Durham goalkeeper Megan Borthwick has signed a new contract with the club for the 2020/2021 season according to reports on The Wildcats’ official website.

The keeper has spent the last four years at New Ferens Park and was Durham’s first choice goalkeeper last season.

Borthwick made 11 appearances for The Wildcats in the FA Women’s Championship last season, keeping four clean sheets as Lee Sanders’ side recorded a third-place finish.

Durham have this evening confirmed that Borthwick is the latest player to sign on with the club for the coming season. The keeper joins eight of her teammates in extending her deal. Those remaining in the North East are Emily Roberts, Nicki Gears, Sarah Wilson, Becky Salicki, Beth Hepple, Ellie Christon, Kathryn Hill and Sarah Robson.

Borthwick joined Durham from neighbours Newcastle United in 2016. The player spent the first three years primarily used as a back up but she has since made the first choice goalkeeping position her own.

Upon signing her new deal with The Wildcats, Borthwick told Durham’s official media sources “I’m very excited to be staying at Durham for another season.

“The support from the fans over the years has been fantastic and I can’t wait to get back out on the pitch with the girls.”

More than half of Borthwick’s appearances for Durham to date came in 2019/2020 and the player will be hoping to add many more outings to her tally in the coming campaign.
