Speaking of Agg ahead of the upcoming season, Head Coach Melissa Phillips said, "Lily is a fantastic competitor and plays with such hunger to win. She was a mainstay in our starting line-up last year and came through in some really big moments. She is a player who is really hitting her stride and playing with loads of confidence, but we both feel the best is still to come. Looking forward to working with her to reach new heights as a player and with London City."
Lily Agg spoke on signing a new deal with the club and said, “I always want to push myself and play at the highest level, and pushing for the WSL is something that always crosses my mind.
