Jess Park pens new deal

Manchester City are delighted to announce Jess Park has signed a three-year extension to her current deal with the Club.

The 20-year-old striker has put pen to paper on a new contract, which will see her remain at the Academy Stadium until the summer of 2026.

The lifelong City fan and 2021/22 Rising Star has been on the books since October 2017 when she joined from York City, before earning her first professional contract in April 2020.


Speaking after signing on the dotted line, she said: “This is my Club and this is where I want to be. I’m so excited to commit my future to City.

“It’s such a great Club – from the players and staff to the facilities and the environment, it’s just such an amazing place to be.

“I’ve supported City my entire life and I think my passion for the Club is definitely clear to see in everything I do, especially on the pitch.

“I’ve learnt so much from the players around me and the coaching staff over the last two seasons since I signed my first professional contract, and I’m looking forward to continuing that for the next four years.”

The past few seasons have been breakthrough ones for Park, with her making strides in Gareth Taylor’s first campaign in charge of the team and providing a crucial assist in extra-time of our 2020 FA Cup Final win over Everton.

Scoring nine goals in 57 appearances so far, the forward also hit her first career hat-trick in a 10-0 FA Cup demolition of Ipswich Town in February 2020.

A highly rated young star in the English game for both Club and country, she has impressed on the international scene for the Lionesses’ Under-19s in recent years, firmly a part of their set-up and with a bright future ahead of her.

Head Coach Gareth Taylor said: “We're so pleased that Jess has committed her long-term future to the Club - she is very much a big part of our plans here at City.

“Even being so young, she has impressed so much over the last couple of seasons and thoroughly deserves this new deal.

“It's been great to see her receiving the credit she deserves too for her performances, but the best is definitely still to come from her over the coming years and we look forward to working with her to help her grow and develop as a player.”
