Arsenal goalkeeper Lydia Williams has triggered an option to extend her contract with the Gunners for another season. The Australian joined the club last summer from Melbourne City on a one-year deal with the option for a further year.
The 33-year old will stick around for the 2021-22 season despite the departure of compatriot Joe Montemurro as manager, however, her international teammates Steph Catley and Caitlin Foord remain a big part of the squad.
Fellow goalkeeper Manu Zinsberger extended her contract earlier this year. “I’m really happy!”, Williams told Arsenal.com. “I just can’t wait to get back and see the fans now. I’ve seen everything on social media, but now I want that fan experience on the pitch and during games because that’s the one thing that I’ve missed the most.”
