Reading Women have issued the longest ever professional contract in the clubs history to keep a key midfielder at the club until 2019.
24-year-old Lauren Bruton has signed an 18 month extension with her current deal due to expire in December and was voted Reading’s player of the season last year.
Bruton is currently in pre-season training with the Royals ahead of the FA WSL spring series which kicks off with a trip to Bristol City on Saturday 22nd April.
On signing her new deal Bruton said: “I’m really pleased to have extended my contract with Reading. The club’s ambition to progress and push on in the WSL made it an easy decision for me and I’m really looking forward to the challenges in the seasons ahead with the team”.
Manager Kelly Chambers: “I’m thrilled that Lauren has further committed her future to the club. Lauren is a great player that still has loads of potential to fulfil. She is a key player for us, as she showed last season, and I’m excited to continue working with her to see how much more she can bring in the coming seasons”.
