London City Lionesses are pleased to announce that Lucy Fitzgerlad has signed a new contract, keeping her with the Lionesses for another season.

“I can’t wait to get going again for the new season, and strive to achieve success with the team.”


When asked her thoughts on Fitzy and her new deal, Head Coach, Melissa Phillips had this to say:


Lucy’s commitment and hard work has been unrivalled this season.


“Her attitude, maturity and flexibility are well beyond her years both as a person and footballer.


“We are excited that we get to continue fostering her development alongside that of the club next season.


“Fitzy has been a mainstay within the London City squad and a key contributor to our most successful season.


“She has a bright future ahead and we can’t wait to get going with Lucy on board.”
