Reign FC capped a week of announcements with news that it has signed midfielder Jess Fishlock to a new contract for the 2014 NWSL season. The deal also includes club options for 2015 and 2016.
Seattle acquired Fishlock as an international discovery player on Feb. 4, 2013, and she went on to start 21 games last season, scoring four goals en route to a Best XI selection.
Fishlock played for Glasgow City of the Scottish Women’s Premier League and the Melbourne Victory of Australia’s W-League over the offseason.
Here are some quotes from the news release:
