Two of Barrow’s brightest young female footballers will come head-to-head in the Women’s FA Cup after Georgia Stanway’s Manchester City were drawn against Aimee Everett’s Leicester City in the quarter finals

Holders City will obviously go into the tie at Sutton Park in Quorn on March 15 as favourites, as they will be against the only Women’s Championship side left in the competition.

The Foxes are in the last eight for the first time in their history after they shocked Women’s Super League side Reading 2-1 in the fifth round.

It will be the first match back on club duty for Stanway, who scored a hat-trick in the same stage against Ipswich Town, after she returns from the SheBelieves Cup, where England are looking to retain the title they won last year.

While the 21-year-old continues to garner headlines, it is a chance for 18-year-old Everett to impress, as she continues her first season with Leicester, who she joined from Liverpool last summer.

Like Stanway, she is also on international duty as she is taking part in a tournament in La Manga, Spain, with England under-19s against Sweden, USA and Denmark.

Having helped the young Lionesses come through the first round of qualifying for the UEFA Under-19 Women’s European Championship towards the end of last year, Everett is set to play for them again in the Elite Round during Easter.

England will be up against Norway, Republic of Ireland and hosts Czech Republic, with the group winners qualifying for this summer’s finals in Georgia.
