Women's Football Georgia Stanway extends Manchester City deal and handed No 10 shirt

Georgia Stanway will don the No 10 shirt next season after signing a new contract at Manchester City which will keep her at the club until 2022.

Stanway joined the club in 2015 and has been spectacular ever since, playing a key role in the four trophies City have won in the period she has been at the club, two FA Cups, one League Cup and one Women’s Super League title.

“I’ve been here four years already and I’ve loved every single minute,” said Stanway. “To be here to stay is such a massive achievement and I can’t wait to get going again. 

“This is where I feel at home and this is where the majority of my development has happened and how I am the player I am today. I’m in the best possible position to move forward and I’m happy here.
 
“To sign my first contract at 18 was enough, but to be staying for even longer is even better and I’m just looking forward to the future.” 

Stanway’s skillset has helped her thrive under the guidance of Nick Cushing, her pace and trickery continually proving too much for opposition defenders to handle.

With 15 goals this season, the 20-year-old is a key member of the undefeated City side and has 35 goals in 88 games for the club.

Cushing added: “We’re delighted that Georgia has signed a new contract and will continue to be an integral part of the City family. 

“Georgia has shown her potential as a player, but more importantly she has shown that she has the drive and determination to keep improving. We know as long as she keeps working hard, the way she has been, the sky is the limit in terms of her ability.”

Stanway has starred for England at both the U17s Euros and the U20s World Cup, with this season also marking Stanway’s debut for the England senior squad — she scored to help England beat Austria 3-0 in a friendly last November.
