Head coach Dean Gibson added: “Kirsty is a player with huge potential and one we are delighted to see staying at the club. I feel she is a player that goes under the radar quite often but to the coaches and players, she is hugely respected and appreciated within the squad.

“Every year I’ve worked with Kirsty – from U23s right through – we have seen vast improvements both in her ability as a player but also her confidence off the pitch. She is an extremely quiet character but every year we are getting more from her.
