Beckie extends City stay

Manchester City are delighted to announce Janine Beckie has signed a new deal with the Club.

The Canada international has put pen to paper on a two-year deal, extending her stay in Manchester to 2022.

Commended for her pace, commitment and positive attitude, the forward played a key role in helping City to domestic cup double success, netting 13 goals – most notably converting the winning penalty in the Continental Cup shoot-out victory over Arsenal in 2019.

Across her 46 appearances, Beckie has also showcased her impressive versatility: employed on the wings and even recently at right-back in the absence of the injured Aoife Mannion.

The 25-year-old is also admired for her team ethic, work rate and cheerful personality and follows in the footsteps of teammates Steph Houghton, Lauren Hemp, Caroline Weir, Keira Walsh and Jess Park in committing her future, asserting joining City has exceeded all expectations.

“I am absolutely delighted to be extending my time here at City,” she declared.

“The last two years have been more than I could have imagined and after the progress and memories I have made so far, there was no doubt when it came to making the decision to re-sign.

“The Club is committed to the growth of the women’s game and is continuing to produce one of the best environments for players in the world.

“I am very much looking forward to next two years and adding my presence to a trophy winning team.

“I want to thank Gavin Makel, Alan Mahon and all support staff for this opportunity to continue to be part of the City family – I am grateful and very excited for what lies ahead.”

Head of Women’s Football Gavin Makel added: “I am delighted that Janine has committed her future to the Club.

“She represents everything that we are about – a player who has the desire to win and improve, whilst always putting the team’s needs above her own.

“There’s no doubt that Janine will continue to get better and better as she has done over the last couple of years.”
