Arsenal left-back Katie McCabe has signed a new contract with the club. The 25-year old joined the Gunners from Shelbourne in 2015 and spent a successful spell on loan at Glasgow City in 2017. Since returning to the club, McCabe has gone from strength to strength.
Nobody played more minutes for Arsenal during their 2018-19 campaign. In 2019-20 she moved to left-back, where she has again excelled this season, providing an outstanding 12 assists from full-back during this season. McCabe should be a leading contender for Arsenal’s player of the season award.
The Ireland captain has decided to extend her stay in North London, telling Arsenal.com, “I’m absolutely delighted. I love this club and I feel like we’re in a really good place and that we’re ready to push on. I’m delighted it got done and now I’m ready to kick on and help this club win more trophies.
“It’s been amazing ever since I joined the club. There’s been ups and downs along the way, but I feel like I’m in a really good place with the team that we’ve got, the players we’ve got and all the staff behind the scenes. I’m really happy to commit my future.”
“Katie McCabe is one of the highlights of the last three or four years here.” Joe Montemurro said. “It’s been a project which has been an exciting one. She’s been thrown every challenge from the day that we brought her back from her loan, and I think she’s just developed into a world-class left-sided player. All credit to her, she personifies exactly what we want from our squad.”
