“It’s fantastic. For me, she’s been an outstanding leader this season so there was no better way to show our appreciation and show how much we value her than to offer her an extension on her contract,” said Vicky Jepson.
“There’s no-one I’d want to lead this team on the pitch and in the dressing room more than Sophie.
“She’s a perfect fit as a footballer for us as a club but also as captain and I’m really looking forward to her leading the way with me in the exciting couple of years ahead.”
Both fans and staff are elated with the news of the 29-year-old committing her future to Liverpool Women.
