Birmingham City’s England Under-21 goalkeeper Hannah Hampton has signed a new contract at Damson Park. Hampton, who became first-choice for Blues towards the end of last season, has signed a two-year deal.
The Blues announced the news of Hampton’s new deal by releasing an official statement on their website: “Blues Women are delighted to announce that Hannah Hampton has signed a new contract,” the club stated.
“The agreement is for two years, keeping her at the Club until the summer of 2021 at least.
“The news was exclusively revealed first to Season Ticket holders at our Season Launch Event earlier this evening.
“The goalkeeper, 18, is considered one of the country’s top prospects. The past year has been a whirlwind for Hampton, who became Blues number one last Christmas whilst studying for her A Levels.
“She proved herself in the Barclays FA WSL with some excellent performances and contributed to Blues’ impressive defence that only conceded 17 goals last season. She was subsequently named the Club’s Young Player of the Season at the annual awards night in May.
“Hampton has enjoyed a successful summer on and off the pitch having just passed her exams and receiving her first call-up to the England Under-21s.”
The 18-year-old was named Birmingham’s Young Player of the Season in May and is regarded as one of the best young goalkeepers in the country. She was in the England Under 21 side for last month’s Nordic Tournament against USA, Sweden and Norway.
