FANS have shared their joy and happiness after England won the EUFA Women's Championship.

On Sunday Stanway, who recently joined Bayern Munich, brought football home as England beat Germany at a sold-out Wembley. 

The 23-year-old, who grew up in Askam and Barrow, started her football journey as a child at Furness Rovers.

And Steve Liddicott, who coached her at the club, recalls it being apparent that something special was happening from a very early age as the young Stanway shone in a team otherwise made up of boys.

"Please grant Georgia Stanway the Freedom Of Barrow-In-Furness in recognition of her tremendous contribution to England's Women becoming Queens Of Europe. If you can do this before you are abolished next April that would be brilliant.
