Erin Cuthbert signs a new contract with Chelsea Women | News | Official site

Erin Cuthbert has signed a new contract with Chelsea, keeping the midfielder at the club until the summer of 2025.

Since joining the Blues as a teenager from the city of Glasgow in 2016, Cuthbert has shown consistent levels of commitment, tenacity and quality in all aspects of her game, becoming a firm favorite with her teammates and supporters alike. equally.

The Scottish international has enjoyed a trophy-filled career at Chelsea, helping us to the Women’s Super League, FA Cup, Continental Cup and Community Shield during her six years in London.

Putting pen to paper and her ambitions for the future, Erin Cuthbert said: “I’m delighted, it’s been a long time coming but I’m happy to finally get over it.” This is my club and this is where I want to be.

‘The hard work is just beginning, it’s just a stepping stone to where I want to be. I still have a lot to learn, I still have a lot to give to this club. I know that I have more in my tank and that I can reach even greater heights.

General manager Paul Green commented on the signing of Cuthbert: ‘We are delighted to have extended Erin’s contract. Erin’s time with us has been key to our success and now she is reaching her prime. We look forward to seeing her continue to improve and develop in midfield in the years to come.”

Cuthbert made a good first impression during the 2017 spring series and became highly influential during the 2017/18 campaign. In her first full season with the club, she helped us to a second WSL and FA Women’s Cup double while ending the campaign as our third top scorer.

There was continued personal growth for Cuthbert during the 2018/19 season. She was named Chelsea Women’s Player of the Year and was our third top scorer for the second season in a row, scoring in every round of our run to the Champions League semi-finals against Lyon. Her excellent volley in this match was voted by UEFA as the best goal of the 2019 Women’s Champions League.

After scoring at Wembley in the Community Shield win over Manchester City to kick off the 2020/21 season, Cuthbert made 35 appearances for the Blues and always gave it his all when asked to help us to another WSL title.

Last season we retained our WSL title and clinched the FA Cup twice (the first transfer from the previous season due to Covid). Cuthbert was a driving force behind these successes, starting 29 games and scoring eight goals, including a stunning strike in the FA Cup win over Manchester City.

On the international stage, Cuthbert has managed 56 caps and 20 goals for Scotland at senior level. She made her full debut against Belarus during UEFA Women’s Euro 2017 qualifying, before going to her first World Cup final in 2019 and scoring against Argentina. Her efforts were duly rewarded when she was named Scotland’s Women’s Player of the Year in 2019.

Everyone at Chelsea congratulates Erin and wishes her continued success in the future.
