Manchester City Women defender Demi Stokes has agreed a two year extension to her current contract, which will keep her at the club until the summer of 2023.
The defender signed for the blues in 2015 from South Florida Bulls by pervious manager Nick Cushing, and Stokes has since gone on to win six trophies including three Women’s FA Cups, two Continental Tyres League Cups and a Women’s Super League (WSL) title.
“I’m so pleased to have signed a new deal,” Stokes said. “I don’t take any contract renewal for granted, but especially right now, I’m very grateful and fortunate to have the opportunity to continue my journey here with this amazing team.
“It’s an exciting time to be a part of Manchester City and in my mind, I didn’t want to be anywhere but here – this Club is home for me, and it was an easy decision to extend my stay.” The 29 year old has made over 150 appearance for the club and has earned 58 England caps, and is an integral part of the City Women set-up.
Manager Gareth Taylor was happy to see Stokes extend her contract. “We’re delighted to see Demi commit her immediate future to Manchester City as she’s been a big part of the Club’s successes over the past six years. She is a very important member of the team and we’re looking forward to continuing our journey together over the next few seasons.”
