Beth Mead signs a new contract with Arsenal for whom she has scored 61 goals in 166 appearances since joining in 2017.

Her new deal follows a stellar 2021/22 season for club and country, as she racked up 33 goal involvements (14 goals, 19 assists) in 40 appearances for Arsenal, before playing a key role in England’s Euro 2022 triumph.

Beth was named Player of the Tournament and won the Golden Boot with six goals in six games, in addition to providing a tournament-high of five assists. Further recognition followed, as Mead was named BBC Women’s Footballer of the Year for 2022 and England Player of the Year for 2021/22.

“I’m so happy to have signed a new deal with Arsenal,” said Mead. “This club is home for me – I’ve grown so much here as a player and a person and I know we can achieve so much more together in the years to come. I want to compete to win the biggest trophies in the game and I know that the ambitions at Arsenal match my own, so I can’t wait to get back onto the pitch and help to deliver the success our supporters deserve.”

Head Coach Jonas Eidevall added: “It’s wonderful news that we have agreed a new deal with Beth. She is a world-class footballer and has proven that on the biggest stage of them all. I have so much admiration for the way she has handled success and adversity on and off the pitch over the past few years, and I’m sure she will approach the next few months with the positive attitude we all know Beth for.”

Head of Women’s Football Clare Wheatley said: “Everyone at Arsenal is delighted that Beth has signed a new contract here with us. In her five years with our club, Beth has grown into one of the best footballers in the world and her form over the past season has reached new heights. We were all so proud to watch her achieve her dreams in the summer and we are looking forward to welcoming her back to the pitch to pursue more success with Arsenal.”
