Full-back Campbell pens new Liverpool deal

Liverpool full-back Megan Campbell has signed a new contract with the club according to reports on The Reds’ official website.

The 28-year-old Republic of Ireland international defender was a member of Liverpool’s Barclays Women’s Championship title-winning side this season.

Campbell joined the Merseyside club on a free transfer last summer and impressed after overcoming a series of long term and niggling injuries. The left-back was solid in defence and an asset to the team on the attack while her long throws became a feature of Liverpool’s game plan. Campbell made 11 appearances for Liverpool in total in the Barclays Women’s Championship.

The player is set to play an important role for the side next season in the Barclays Women’s Super League with Liverpool having today agreed new terms with Campbell.

After signing on again at Prenton Park, Campbell said “Off the back of such a successful season for us as a club, there’s nowhere else I’d rather be.

“Being able to play consistently for the last five months, managing my load, it’s been nice to be able to be involved in the success of the club.

“A big reason I wanted to stay also is the togetherness of this team; it’s like something I’ve never been a part of before. Everyone fights for everyone, pushing each other in training to do well on the pitch no matter who’s playing in the starting 11 or who’s coming off the bench.

“I think we tend to thrive around each other.”

Further squad updates at Liverpool will be issued by the club in due course.
