Fran Stenson signs new contract


We’re delighted to confirm that goalkeeper Fran Stenson has signed a new contract, committing her future to Arsenal.

Shot-stopper Fran Stenson joined us from Manchester City in August 2019, and spent last season on loan at Blackburn Rovers.

Fran featured nine times for Blackburn during her loan spell and despite the season being cut short, was voted Blackburn Rovers Young Player of the Season.

Returning to the club this term, Fran will compete with goalkeepers Manuela Zinsberger and Lydia Williams.

Fran is an England international too, having represented her country at U15, U16, U17, U18 and U19 level.

“I’m so pleased to have committed my future to the club,” Stenson told “I’ve always wanted to play for Arsenal, so it’s a dream come true. I’m so happy to cement my future here.“

“This is a really important signing for us” said head coach, Joe Montemurro. “We believe that Fran could be one of the best goalkeepers in England and for the national team. She’s an important part of our process going forward and it’s really exciting that a player of development and that level has committed herself to Arsenal. We’re privileged to be part of her development to become one of the best goalkeepers in the world.”

Everyone at the club would like to congratulate Fran on her new contract.
