Manchester City Football Club is delighted to announce that Lauren Hemp has signed a two-year contract extension at the Academy Stadium.

One of English football’s brightest young talents, the 21-year-old has committed her future to City, with her current contract now set to run until the conclusion of the 2023/24 season.

“I’m delighted to have signed a contract extension here at City,” she told after putting pen to paper on her new deal.

“It’s a club where we’re constantly competing for trophies and success – I’ve already enjoyed some amazing moments here since joining three-and-a-half years ago, and I know that there is much more to come from this team.

“I’m surrounded by some of the best players and coaching staff in the world, and having them around me will only help to develop me even further over the coming years.”

Currently in her fourth year at the Club having initially made the switch to Manchester in the summer of 2018 from Bristol City, Hemp has developed a sparkling reputation in recent seasons for both club and country.

A three-time PFA Women’s Young Player of the Year in 2017-18, 2019-20 and 2020-21, the Norwich-born winger was also named as Women’s Rising Star at the recent North West Football Awards.

Having made her debut for England’s senior set-up two years ago after impressing in the Lionesses’ youth ranks, Hemp scored her first goals for the national team in November and was also a member of the Team GB women’s football team at the Tokyo Olympic Games.

With City meanwhile, she has scored 28 goals in 81 appearances in all competitions so far, including an effort in the team’s Women’s FA Cup Final success over West Ham United in May 2019.

A virtual ever-present for Gareth Taylor’s side in 2021-22 so far – missing just a single game – our No.15 has gained plaudits galore from pundits and supporters for her industrious and fearless approach to the game.

“We’re absolutely thrilled that Lauren has committed herself to this club for another two years,” added Taylor.

“She is one of the game’s brightest young talents, is an absolute pleasure to work with and has a very exciting future ahead of her.

“We’re only just scratching the surface with her at 21 years old and that’s an incredible thought given what she has achieved so far in her short career, but she’s also still learning from everyone here at City.

“We can’t wait to see what the next couple of years hold for us as a team and her as a player.”
