Man City Women are delighted to announce goalkeeper Karen Bardsley has signed a new contract with the Club.

The England star has agreed a deal which extends her stay at the Academy Stadium for a further two years.

The 32-year-old, who joined the Club in November 2013, has been an integral part of the Blues’ journey, having made 66 appearances in sky blue.

In the 2016 double-winning season, Bardsley conceded just once in the league as Nick Cushing’s side lifted their first Super League crown.

A second Continental Tyres Cup triumph and an impressive maiden Champions League campaign would follow and the California-born shot-stopper is eager to achieve more success with the Blues.

“I feel great,” she told ManCity.com. “I’m really excited to have put pen to paper and remain at a place I absolutely love.

“I’m proud to be part of Manchester City and I’m excited to see out the next couple of years. It was never in doubt.

“I’ve been here from the beginning and I’ve found the Club’s outlook to be really progressive. There’s always something changing for the better and it feels like a family.

“We developed these standards which personally resonate with me – how I see myself and what I want to achieve.

“The Club is ambitious and this is where I belong.”
