England Women’s captain Casey Stoney signs two-year deal with Lincoln Ladies
Casey Stoney has signed a new two-year deal with Lincoln Ladies.
The England Women’s captain joined the Imps in March 2011 ahead of the inaugural FA WSL season, leading them to a fourth-place finish and she told the BBC that she is delighted to have finally put pen to paper.
Stoney said: "This club has set itself big ambitions and I hope to help them achieve them.
"I am really happy to have signed a new deal with Lincoln. The vision of this club is fantastic and I am excited to be a part of it.”
This new contract caps a remarkable year for the centre-back.
Named England captain in May, she also donned the armband for Team GB at the Olympics and led them to an historic 1-0 win over Brazil at Wembley.
Stoney then helped England qualify unbeaten for next summer’s European Championship Finals and scored the final goal of the campaign, in the 3-0 win over Croatia in September.
Fellow England internationals Sophie Bradley and Jess Clarke both signed one-year deals with the Imps earlier this month, with the option of a further year.
The draw for Euro 2013 will take place in Sweden on Friday 9 November.
