After promotion to the Bundesliga and having been handed the title at the weekend, 1. FC Köln Frauen are now in a well-deserved summer break. However, the plans for the coming campaign are still on-going. Amber Barrett has signed a one-year extension to her deal to remain at the club for a third season.
Barrett arrived in Köln from Peamount United in 2019. The 25-year-old scored on her debut against Holstein Kiel in the DFB-Pokal and scored the winning goals against Bayer Leverkusen and SC Sand. Despite that goal on the final day against Sand, FC were relegated on goal difference. However, Barrett played a key role in promotion back to the top-flight. The Milford-native scored 10 goals in the past league campaign, including the opening goal in the first four matches. Barrett continued her good record against Leverkusen, grabbing the winner in the DFB-Pokal second round.
Amber Barrett said, “I am delighted to have signed a new deal with FC. I have really enjoyed my time here over the past two seasons and was proud to help the club get promoted back to the Bundesliga. I have developed a lot as a player and person since I arrived, and I want to keep working hard and scoring goals. My aim and the aim of everyone here is to establish ourselves in the top-flight.”
Nicole Bender, FC Frauen Sporting Director, said: “Amber has been with us for two years and has integrated herself brilliantly into the team, both on and off the pitch. She is willing to learn, has gone through a German course and made a leap forward in a tactical and footballing sense. She is a quick striker with an eye for goal, she also works well with Mandy Islacker up front. We are very pleased that she sees her future at FC and look forward to her goals in the Bundesliga next season.”
