The 27 year old Republic of Ireland international has featured 27 times this season and 99 times in total for the club and will become City’s 25th centurion on her next appearance.

As part of the Commsworld Connecting Champions to Schools programme, Shine has chatted to a whole range of pupils about what it is like in the day of a life of a professional footballer. She recently had the honour of opening a brand-new pitch at Hillhead Primary School in Kirkintilloch.

Shine said: "I’m delighted to sign an extension with Glasgow City. I’m really looking forward for what’s to come for the club." Head Coach Eileen Gleeson said:"I’m delighted that Clare has decided to extend her time with Glasgow City FC. Clare has been a part of many special moments with Glasgow City and brings a wealth of experience. As a leader both on and off the pitch Clare is huge part of the team. I look forward to continuing to work with her going forward."
