Exciting News: Williamson Extends Contract with Arsenal

Leah Williamson is committed to winning more titles with Arsenal after renewing her contract to extend her remarkable 19-year tenure with the club. The English defender, who first tried out for the Gunners at just eight years old, has reached a new agreement with the Women’s Super League team.

After recovering from a severe anterior cruciate ligament injury that caused her to miss the 2023 Women’s World Cup final, Williamson returned to action in February. The 27-year-old, who captained England to Euro 2022 success, has made 232 appearances for Arsenal, securing the Women’s Super League title, as well as the FA Cup and League Cup twice.

“Everyone knows how much Arsenal means to me, but every time I renew my contract, that love comes back to life,” she shared with the club’s official website. “I’m thrilled to be staying. This is a place where I can continue to evolve, develop, and be pushed. As a team, we are driven to bring more trophies to this club, and I am eager to get back to work when the new season begins.”

Arsenal head coach Jonas Eidevall expressed his delight at Williamson’s contract extension, highlighting her leadership, accountability, and dedication both on and off the field. Clare Wheatley, the director of women’s football at the club, emphasized Williamson’s deep connection with Arsenal and praised her unwavering commitment and passion, from her days in the academy to the accomplished athlete she is today. Arsenal’s supporters are sure to join Wheatley in celebrating Williamson’s continued presence with the team.
