It is something that I have worked so hard for.

Blues Women are delighted to announce that Gemma Lawley has signed her first professional contract.

The defender has agreed terms with the Club after emerging into the First Team during the 2020/21 season and has signed for two years.

Lawley, 18, made her debut in last year’s Vitality Women’s FA Cup semi-final against Everton, adding further senior appearances in both the Barclays FA Women’s Super League and Continental Tyres League Cup.

After signing her first pro deal, Lawley told BluesTV:

"It is something that I have worked so hard for over the years and it just makes up for the long journeys and drives that my parents have been doing up and down the country. 

"I'm proud and just from the support of my family it's been brilliant, so to get this now is kind of a dream come true.

"There is great history at the Club and it is a great opportunity for young players to break into the first team."
