Carla Ward: Aston Villa manager signs contract extension

Ward joined Villa in May 2021 and had six months remaining on her deal with the option for the club to extend.

Villa finished ninth in her first season and after 10 games in 2022-23 they sit seventh in the 12-team Women's Super League.

"I'm delighted but it's about kicking on again - I want more, now it's about moving forward," said Ward.

""When I came in I set out very clearly to the board what I wanted to achieve over the three years and the initial period. I think we're on track to do that."
