 Charlton Athletic are thrilled to announce that Emma Follis has agreed a one-year contract extension, keeping her with the club for the 2022/23 campaign.  

Follis signed for Karen Hills’ Addicks following her exit from Barclays Women’s Super League side Aston Villa upon the conclusion of the 2020/21 season. 

The Sutton Coldfield-born winger is a veteran of the game having made over 170 career appearances, including featuring for England at both U19 and U23 level. 

The 30-year-old played a vital role in the Addicks' first season as a professional club, making 19 appearances for Hills’ side in the 2021/22 campaign and recording five goals to finish as the club's joint-highest goalscorer.

Upon signing the new contract, Follis shared her delight at extending her stay with the club: “I’m really looking forward to the new season. I want to kick on from last year and try and help to team improve and be successful.”
