Lionesses agree new contract with England prospect
Millwall Lionesses are delighted to confirm that gifted young midfielder Lilli Maple has agreed a three-year contract which will keep her at the club until the end of the 2017 campaign.
Lilli, who turned 19 on Monday, initially joined Millwall's Development Squad but made such an impact at the club that she was handed her senior debut on the opening day of the WSL 2 season at Watford.
She quickly became a mainstay in the Lionesses first team, making 22 League and Cup appearances, and rounded off a sensational first campaign with a call-up to the England U19s squad in October.
She said: "I'm feeling very good right now. Ever since I first arrived at the club I knew that I wanted to stay with Millwall for a very long time. So for people to believe in me and think that I'm worth giving a contract to is great."
Lilli’s new deal follows the contract extensions of defender Naomi Cole and goalkeeper Sarah Quantrill.
