Reading Women midfielders Rachel Rowe and Lois Roche have signed professional contracts for the 2016 season following the club's promotion to WSL1.

Roche was signed in 2012 from Watford and was previously at Arsenal.

"It has been a dream come true to sign a professional contract with the club that has given me many special memories over the past few years," she said.

Wales international Rowe added: "I can't quite put into words how much this means to me."

Rowe and Roche are the latest Royals players to commit their futures to the club since they reached the top flight.

Kirsty McGee, Nia Jones, Emma Follis, Lauren Bruton, Molly Bartrip, Grace Moloney and Becky Jane also recently signed contracts.
