A BARROVIAN football star is returning to her hometown to provide a football clinic to youngsters.

Georgia Stanway, who is just 21-years-old, has already seen great success in her football career including being named PFA Women’s Young Player of the Year in April 2019.

The star will be in Barrow next week to provide her expertise in a bid to inspire a new generation of footballers.

As part of this year’s ‘#SameGoals’ campaign, Stanway will be hosting a free football clinic for 10-14 year-olds on February 5.

The clinic will be happening from 5.30pm-7.30pm at Pulse, Barrow.

The clinic requires no registration to take part in it. Youngsters just need to turn up in the appropriate sportswear.

John Jones, from Pulse Barrow said: “It is a positive for the town, and it will be very inspiring for young girls.

“It will be especially good for the kids because it shows that they can make it big too like Georgia.

“There is only two girls teams that train on the grounds at Pulse, in comparison we have anywhere between 25-30 teams of boys in a week.

“I hope that this will help bridge the gap between the amount of girls and boys playing over the next year.

“This will also be good for anyone who will be using our grounds at the same time as the clinic is on, knowing that Georgia is there too.

“It is also really great for us to build links with Manchester City.”

Stanway has been with Manchester City since 2015.

Manchester City runs the #SameGoals campaign.

The campaign aims to inspire the next generation of female footballers.

It is currently in its third year of running.

This year as part of the campaign, Manchester City has pledged to deliver a special limited-edition football provided by PUMA to every girl who shares a video showing them scoring or saving a goal.
