Sunderland Midfielder Grace Ede Commits to Contract Extension
Grace Ede, the talented Sunderland midfielder, has inked a contract extension with the Barclays Women’s Championship club. The official announcement of this contract renewal was made by the Lady Black Cats through their official club website.
Despite her young age of 18, Ede is already making waves in the world of women’s football. It has been revealed that she will continue to be on a hybrid contract for the current season, which allows her to balance her studies alongside her football commitments. In 2023/2024, she is set to transition into a full-time professional player.
Grace Ede has been a pivotal part of Sunderland’s squad since their return to the elite ranks of women’s football in the 2021/2022 season. Her impressive record includes 22 league appearances for the Lady Black Cats, and she has been a consistent presence in all five of Sunderland’s matches this season.
With her promising talent and potential, Ede is poised for a bright future, and her development will continue to flourish at Sunderland in the years ahead.
Delighted about her contract extension, Ede shared her excitement, stating, “I’m really excited. I’ve been at Sunderland since I was little, and it’s a dream come true to have signed my new contract. I can’t wait to see what the future holds and make more memories with this Club.”
Sunderland, led by Grace Ede, will be back in action in the Barclays Women’s Championship this Sunday as they travel to St Andrew’s to take on Birmingham City. The Wearside club has started the season impressively, amassing 11 points from a possible 15, indicating a promising campaign ahead.
