Liverpool FC captain Niamh Fahey has signed a new contract with the club, extending her four year stay in Merseyside.

The Republic of Ireland international led the team to the FA Women’s Championship title last season, where they went unbeaten. Now Fahey will lead the club as they make a return to the Barclays Women’s Super League in September.

The Galway native has played over 100 times for the Republic of Ireland and recently scored her first senior international goal.

Speaking after the news, Liverpool FC manager Matt Beard said: “Niamh was outstanding last year, a great leader on and off the pitch.

“Her performances last season, even in the big games, were fantastic. Her experience will be something we will need next season.

“She’s a great character, technically she’s a very gifted football player and a very, very good defender.”

For Fahey, the chance to continue her career with the Reds was a ‘no-brainer’.

She said: “It’s brilliant, I’m so excited for the year ahead and I’m delighted to extend my stay.

“Getting to lift the trophy last season with this group of girls and staff, there’s nowhere else I’d rather be. It wasn’t even a decision.

“It’s something that has sunk in over the summer and obviously makes me very proud.”

Liverpool begin their WSL campaign on September 11 at Reading. Fellow Irish internationals, Megan Campbell and Leanne Kiernan are also part of the Liverpool squad.
