Jess Carter signs contract extension

Birmingham City Ladies defender Jess Carter has committed her future to the Club.

The talented 19-year-old has put pen-to-paper on a 18-month contract extension, plus a further one-year option.

Carter was ever-present last season after making a total of 21 appearances in all competitions.

Her excellent performances were noted throughout the Club as she claimed four accolades at last season’s Player Awards.

The England Next Generation star was the big winner as she received the Manager’s Player of the Season, Players’ Player of the Season, Young Player of the Season and Supporter’s Club Player of the Season.

Carter’s new deal is a real statement for Marc Skinner’s side ahead of the forthcoming Spring Series.

The Warwick-based defender joined the Club in 2013 and made her senior debut at the tender age of 16 in the UEFA Women’s Champions League quarter-final first-leg against Arsenal.
