Liverpool defender Rhiannon Roberts has signed a new two-year contract with the club according to reports on The Reds’ official website.
The 30-year-old Chester-born full-back has appeared in 19 of Liverpool’s 20 matches in this season’s FA Women’s Championship as the club recorded a finish in third place.
With The Reds looking to mount a more serious promotion push next season, work has started on putting down some foundations with Roberts committing her long term future to the club. It has today been confirmed that the player has signed a new long term contract which will keep her at Prenton Park until summer 2023.
Roberts is a hugely experienced member of the Liverpool side. She has over a decade of senior playing experience at club level in spells with Blackburn Rovers, Doncaster Rovers Belles and Liverpool while she has 29 senior international caps for the Welsh national team.
After signing her new deal, Roberts told Liverpool’s official media sources “I’m really, really happy to be committing my future to Liverpool.
“I’m really looking forward to the future. We’ve built some great foundations this year and I’m ready to go for next year now. I’m putting all my energies into that and we’re ready to try and get ourselves back up where we belong.”
Roberts will begin her fourth campaign as a Liverpool player next season.
