Everton has ensured the services of their goalkeeper Courtney Brosnan until the end of 2024, having activated the option to extend her contract for another 12 months. The move comes just before the expiration of Brosnan's existing deal at the end of June.

Brosnan, a Republic of Ireland international, was initially signed by Everton in July 2021 after her contract with West Ham United concluded. Born and raised in New Jersey, USA, the 27-year-old has since become a regular part of Everton's squad.

The 2022/23 season was particularly noteworthy for Brosnan, who clocked 16 appearances in all competitions. 

Adding to her list of accomplishments, Brosnan was instrumental in leading the Republic of Ireland to their debut in the Women’s World Cup finals, set to take place in Australia and New Zealand later this year. This achievement earned her the title of her nation’s player of the season.

Today, Brosnan has received another honor as she was named in Vera Pauw's final 23-player Republic of Ireland World Cup squad. The team is set to travel to Australia on Friday, July 7.

Reflecting on her extended contract with Everton, Brosnan said: “I’m really excited and happy to have extended my time at Everton. Last season was excellent, with a great group of girls and seeing the progress we made. I’m excited to be back next season and hopefully continue on that path and keep on improving."

Brosnan further praised Everton for its ambitious ethos, stating: "Everton is a fantastic club, with great ambition so it’s good to be a part of. It’s really exciting to be able to come in every day and see the progress we have made and push together towards our goals. It’s something I love being a part of and I’m looking forward to next season to continue on that path.”
