Maya Le Tissier has signed her first professional deal, while Megan Walsh has agreed a new contract.

Le Tissier will put pen to paper on a two-and-a-half-year contact when she turns 18 in April. This will run until June 2022 after progressing from the club’s dual career academy, while Walsh has extended her stay at the club until June 2021.

Women’s first-team manager Hope Powell said, “We are thrilled that both Maya and Megan have signed new deals with the club.

“Megan has been superb for us since arriving from Yeovil in the summer, and has produced some outstanding performances in goal.

“We have also been delighted with Maya’s progress this season, and she thoroughly deserves what we hope will be the first of many professional contracts in her career.”

She has made a total of 13 appearances in all competitions so far this season.
