GREAT GABBY UP FOR GONG
EVERTON defender Gabby George has received two nominations ahead of the 2015 North West Football Awards.
The 18-year-old has been named alongside England pair Jill Scott and Fara Williams for the Women’s Player of the Year gong, while Manchester City’s Nikita Parris and Maz Pacheco of Liverpool are in the running for the Women’s Rising Star of the Year.
And George is grateful Everton have given her an opportunity to shine in an area proving to be the hotbed of women’s football.
“Everton have been vital to why I have been nominated for the awards by giving me the opportunities I have had with them,” the England Under-19 international said.
“Having so much game time in WSL 1 and 2 alongside starting in the FA Cup final at 17 has helped me.”
The awards will be presented at The Point, Emirates Old Trafford on November 16.
