Megan has made more saves – 450 – than any other goalkeeper in the ten-year history of the WSL and has kept clean sheets in four of her last eight games to help Albion climb to seventh in the table.

Megan said: “I’m delighted to sign this new contract and hopefully I can help the club go from strength to strength.

“We’ve had some great results in recent weeks and we’re looking to finish the season strongly. The team spirit is fantastic, and I love working with the squad every day, especially the goalkeepers in our group.

“Moving into our own training facilities later in the year will be another big step forward and I look forward to being part of Brighton’s journey towards becoming a top four club in the WSL.”

Head coach Hope Powell added: “Meg is a brilliant professional and such a great asset for us.
