Jen Beattie signs new deal

Jen Beattie

We are delighted to announce that Jen Beattie has signed a new deal to extend her stay with the club.

The new contract means that Jen will continue her association with Arsenal – which stretches across two different spells in North London – as part of a dual role with us.

In addition to her playing duties, Jen will take up a mentoring role with our academy, working with the next generation of Arsenal talent. She will also contribute her expertise to our commercial and partnerships teams on an ongoing basis.

The experienced Scotland international spent four years with us between 2009 and 2013, winning one league title, two FA Cups and two League Cups during this time. After stints with Montpellier, Manchester City and Melbourne City, Jen then returned to Arsenal in 2019 and has been a key figure around the club ever since.

In total, Jen has made 134 appearances for the club, scoring 30 goals along the way.

She was also a worthy recipient of the BBC Sports Personality of the Year Helen Rollason Award in 2021, for outstanding achievement in the face of adversity.

“I’ve really enjoyed the past three seasons, but I’ve still got so much to achieve as part of this club and I’m excited to extend,” said Jen. “This is the club that gave me my first real opportunity in football – I was an 18-year-old kid coming down here initially and obviously I’ve gone on and played elsewhere in between, but to be a part of it now… it’s close to home and it’s a special club. Being a part of the players and the staff we have, I really feel this is a club going in the right direction.”

Head Coach Jonas Eidevall added: “I’m very happy that Jen will be staying with us. Her experience and professionalism are so important for us as a squad and I know she will continue to make a key contribution both on and off the pitch, with the first team and with the young players in our academy set-up.”

Head of Women’s Football Clare Wheatley said: “Jen knows this club inside out so we’re delighted that she has signed a new contract. As well as being an integral member of our playing squad, Jen will also spend time mentoring our academy players, and we have no doubt that she will bring the same dedication and drive to this role as we are used to seeing on the field of play.”

Teyah Goldie signs professional contract

Teyah Goldie

We are delighted to confirm that Teyah Goldie has signed her first professional contract with us.

Teyah – who turns 18 today – has agreed a long-term deal to stay with the club she has represented for over ten years.

Teyah first joined our youth academy at the age of six in 2011, working her way up through the ranks before making her first-team debut off the bench in our 10-0 FA Cup win over Gillingham on 18 April 2021.

In total, she has made six appearances for our first team so far, including a substitute appearance in our UEFA Women’s Champions League clash with Okzhetpes in August 2021.

Teyah joined Championship side Watford on a dual-registration agreement in January 2022 and won the club’s Player of the Month award for February, before a knee injury curtailed her 2021/22 campaign.

“It feels unbelievable to finally be signing with the club that I love and that I’ve been with all my life almost,” said Teyah. “I’m absolutely delighted. I don’t think I can really put it into words. It’s something that I’ve always dreamed of and now it’s become a reality – I just can’t wait to get going. I’m a Gooner myself so to actually sign here, for the club that I love and support, is just incredible.”

Head Coach Jonas Eidevall added: “It’s great news that Teyah has signed her first professional contract with us. Our academy has a long tradition of producing talented players for the first team and we all believe that Teyah has the potential to follow that path.”

Head of Women’s Football Clare Wheatley said: “We’re delighted that Teyah has committed her future to us through her first professional contract. She has shown impressive development in recent years and follows the likes of Leah Williamson and Lotte Wubben-Moy in coming through our renowned academy and into the first-team set-up, where we have high hopes for her future progression.”

Everyone at the club would like to congratulate Teyah on signing her first professional contract and looks forward to seeing her continue her development with us.
