Hemp: I'm not the finished article!

Lauren Hemp says she is 'excited for what the future holds', having signed a contract extension with City.

The 19-year-old has put pen to paper on a multi-year deal to commit her immediate future to the Club, declaring the decision was never in doubt.

Admired for her speed, composure and positive attitude, Hemp has already clocked up 32 appearances for Nick Cushing’s side since joining in the summer of 2018, scoring nine goals and playing her part in helping the Club to a domestic Cup double.

Tipped to achieve great things, she has also progressed on the international stage, earning her first call-up and cap for Phil Neville's Lionesses outfit - and asserts that the City Football Academy is the best place to continue her rapid development.

“I’m still not the finished article – there are some things I need to improve on – but being at City, with the best coaches and teammates around me, is the best environment to get the best out of myself,” Hemp said.

“Nick is a really good manager and he helps me a lot to improve in different areas, and he knows what I need to do to get to the top. I have to keep playing, scoring goals and helping the team as much as I can. Working with him is what’s going to get the best out of me."
