Abi Cowie signs first professional contract

Blues Women are delighted to announce that Abi Cowie has signed her first professional contract with the Club.

Having turned 18 in May, the defender has put pen-to-paper on a professional deal until 2024.

Cowie joined the Club when she was nine and has progressed through the talented pathway, making her First Team debut last September in the Vitality Women’s FA Cup quarter-final against Chelsea.

This was then followed by a further nine appearances in all competitions, including starting Blues’ final six games of the season after impressing then Interim Head Coach Darren Carter with her performances in defence.

After signing her first professional contract, Cowie said: “It feels amazing, especially after spending so long at the Club. It’s been a dream come true. 

“I think the pathway at Blues is great, especially the opportunities I’ve been given at First Team this season and last season was brilliant. 

“I appreciate Carts so much as a coach. I’ve learnt so much from him since he came in. Starting the last six games was great for me, especially in the WSL.”

Congratulations, Abi!
