Chelsea FC Women utility player Beth England has signed a new long-term contract with The Blues according to reports by the club’s official website.

The 24-year-old Barnsley-born ace, who has adopted a more attacking role this season, was set to be out of contract at the end of the season but will now remain with the FA Women’s Super League champions beyond the summer.

It has been reported that England has signed a new two-year deal with Chelsea meaning that she is now contracted to The Blues until summer 2021.

England spent last season on loan at Liverpool Women and she has made a huge statement upon her return to South West London. Prior to her loan move, the player was trialed in a number of different roles but she has since excelled in attack and has become one of the first names on manager Emma Hayes’ teamsheet.

The former England Under-23 international ace started her career with former top flight outfit Doncaster Rovers Belles. The player joined current club Chelsea ahead of the 2016 FA Women’s Super League 1 campaign and showed glimpses of her potential in her first year with the club.

Many pundits questioned England’s long-term role at Chelsea but the player has kicked-on and has now made a position in The Blues’ attack her own.
