We are delighted to announce that Shelina Zadorsky has signed a new contract with the Club which will run until June, 2022, with the option to extend for a further year.
The central defender from Ontario, Canada, joined us from Orlando Pride in August, 2020, and has made 20 appearances in all competitions so far this term.
A mainstay of our backline, Shelina has worn the captain’s armband since the turn of the year and led the team out for the second successive north London derby at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
The 28-year-old is vastly experienced at international level with 69 caps for Canada and played every minute of their SheBelieves Cup campaign in the United States in February.
She won a bronze medal with her country at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio and will be aiming for a return to the podium at this summer’s Olympic Games in Tokyo.
Shelina said: “I feel very excited. I think we’ve created a really cool culture and it is exciting to see where we are heading.
"The quality of this league is top tier and just playing week in, week out against some of the best opposition as well. For me as an individual it is testing me every week.”
