Nailsea's Rebecca Holloway has signed a new two-year contract with Birmingham City Women to keep her with the FA Women's Super League side until 2023.

The Northern Ireland international helped Kenny Shiels side qualify for the Euro 2022 finals and has been somewhat of a revelation in the side with Demi Vance being out due to an ACL injury. 

Holloway played in both legs of the play-off against Ukraine and has won four caps in total after making her debut against England and playing in the most recent fixture against Scotland in June. 

Holloway signed for the Blues in 2019, joining from Nashville Rhythm of the Women’s Premier Soccer League in the United States after previously impressing at Cumberland Phoenix during her time at Cumberland University.

Last season Holloway played in 21 games for The Blues, as they survived relegation with Bristol City relegated to the Championship.

"I have so much more to offer that I feel no one has seen yet and I’m excited to potentially show that this season. I can’t wait to see the fans again."

Birmingham City Women will find out their Women's Super League fixture list on Friday July 23 with Holloway also having one eye on Northern Ireland's World Cup qualification campaign starting against Luxembourg in September.
