England International footballer pays us a suprise visit-November 2018!

Greengate Girls’ football team got the best surprise ever this morning…..only a visit from Manchester City and England star Georgia Stanway! Fresh from their fabulous performance at the County Finals where they narrowly came runners up, the girls were amazed as Georgia presented them with signed England flags from her recent performance for the national team. Georgia then told the school all about her life as a professional footballer and the feeling of amazement as she scored for the England Senior team on her debut. One lucky pupil was even presented with a signed Manchester City shirt. Georgia then stayed to watch the weekly Friday assembly and then later sat with with the girls showing them some of her favourite goals. The look of amazement was still evident on the girls’ faces later in the day! We cannot thank Georgia enough for giving up her time to pay us a visit.

Teacher, Neil Irving said, ” This is a day the girls will remember for a long time. Georgia talked to the girls all about her career and they sat transfixed as she showed them her goals. We were delighted she came along for the morning. It’s not every day an England International footballer pays us a visit! A fabulous day.”
