MILLWALL LIONESSES have secured their Spring Series joint-top scorer Ella Rutherford on a new two-year deal.
Rutherford, an England under-17 international, scored three times in six games as the Lionesses finished their spring campaign on an eight-game unbeaten league run to finish third in the table.
“It’s great to sign a contract with the club that I’ve been at for the past six years,” Rutherford said. “This is what I’ve been working towards, trying to gain a regular place in the first team and get as much experience as I can.”
Lionesses boss Lee Burch added: “Ella’s really shown what she’s about this Spring Series and we’re excited about what she can do next season. “She’s played in both the 9 and 10 roles for us and given how young she is, she’s done excellent.”
