Football Ferns captain Abby Erceg has re-signed with the United States club champion Western New York Flash.

The central defender who has played more than 100 times for New Zealand skippered the Flash to victory over Washington Spirit in the National Women's Soccer League final this month. The scores were 2-2 after regulation time and extra time, leading to a 3-2 penalty shoot-out win.

Erceg, 26, is among four players who have re-committed to the club while a further 10 have exercised an option to stay.

Elsewhere, first-choice Football Ferns midfielder Katie Bowen, 22, has exercised her option to stay at FC Kansas City.
