England signs new Chelsea Ladies contract

Chelsea Ladies star Beth England has signed a new contract.

The 22-year-old, who was signed from Doncaster Rovers Belles in January last year, is now under contract at Chelsea until 2019.

‘I’m really grateful and happy the club want to keep me until then, because I absolutely love it here,” she said.

“The players, the staff, the environment – I couldn’t be happier here. I was really pleased when they approached me about extending it for longer.”

England made 19 appearances for Emma Hayes’ side last season, scoring five goals.
