Courtney Webb has re-signed with Melbourne Renegades for two years ahead of the seventh edition of Women's Big Bash League WBBL, announced the club in a statement on Monday (June 21).

Webb was one of the few players to play all of Renegades' matches in the WBBL06 and she was awarded franchise's Player of the Season for her stellar performance throughout the season.

The 21-year-old joined Renegades before WBBL 04, with this contract she will remain with Renegades till WBBL08. Speaking about the extension, Webb said, “Moving to the Renegades has really helped fast track my development. I’ve been given some opportunities to establish myself in the middle order and I’m really aiming to take my game to a new level in the coming seasons.”

The right-handed batter said that she is excited to work with newly appointed captain Sophie Molineux and Simon Helmot. She said, “We’ve got an exciting group of players coming through and we’re all looking forward to working under the leadership of Soph (Molineux) and ‘Helmo’ (Simon Helmot) as we try to push for a finals spot.”

Webb scored 246 runs at an average of 30.75. One of the highlights of the season was her unbeaten 54 from 33 balls in the Renegades' super-over win against their cross-city rivals Melbourne Stars.

Renegades Coach Simon Helmot said that Webb is a key part of their future plans as a club. "She came in at some difficult times last season but held our innings together and we’re excited to see Courtney’s development over the next couple of years," he concluded.
