Leanne Crichton puts pen to paper on contract extension


Notts ladies and Scottish International Leanne Crichton has extended her stay at Meadow Lane.

The central midfielder has put pen-to-paper on a new one-year deal with the magpies and is pleased with her personal contributions throughout her first season at Notts, whilst hoping to help the club further by achieving silverware next season.

She said “Last year was good year for us, but it’s now time to build on the success of last season and bring silverware back to Meadow Lane”.

“I am delighted to be extending my contact for another year, the club has been everything and more than what I expected and the fans were a huge reason behind my decision to stay.”

The lady pie has been key in Notts ladies team, with manager Rick Passmoor selecting her for all but two games last season. She played a key role in helping Notts reach the women’s F.A Cup final and the Continental Tyres Cup Final.

Leanne grew up playing football for her hometown club Glasgow City, before moving onto fellow Glaswegian side Celetic and Scottish side Hibernian but later re-signed for her hometown club Glasgow City where she reached the Champions League.

She has since settled within Nottingham and has committed another season to the lady pies, after signing the new one-year deal with Notts County. At the start of the 2015 season, she became a professional footballer by making the move to Notts.

Good move tbf. Glad Rick Passmoor is keeping his core squad together whenever possible and looking to bring more success to the lane.

It is, I recall us signing her and how she had the option to sign for a club where she may achieve more with by now. I'm impressed by how she mentioned the 'fans' as her reason to extend her stay, as it's a long way from Scotland and her family up there.

Ps. @hissingdwarf I wished the men's senior squad achieve keeping the core squad, it would highlight progression and stability for me.
