Barrow's Georgia Stanway was part of a record-breaking weekend in the Women's Super League, as her Manchester City side defeated newly-promoted Manchester United 1-0 last Saturday.

City claimed all three points in what was the first women's Manchester derby in the top flight thanks to a stunning strike from Caroline Weir, in front of a crowd of 31,213 at the Etihad Stadium.

The attendance smashed the previous WSL record, which was set back in April when 5,265 witness Brighton v Arsenal at the Amex Stadium.

Stanway, fresh from scoring her second senior international goal during England's 2-1 defeat at Norway last Tuesday, played from the start in what was City's first match of the new season.

The 20-year-old came close early on with a low effort from the edge of the area before her close friend Ellie Roebuck prevented the hosts from falling behind by producing a fantastic save to deny former City striker Jane Ross.

The deadlock was broken in spectacular fashion three minutes into the second half when Weir seized on a loose clearance from United captain Katie Zelem before firing into the top corner from 25 yards out.

The visitors refused to lie down, however, as Jackie Groenen broke into the penalty area and although she initially overran the ball, the Netherlands international shot against the inside of the post, with Roebuck gratefully clutching the rebound.
