NIKITA PAR­RIS

Lancashire Life - - Lancashire Heroes -

One of the stars of the Eng­land side that reached the semi-fi­nals of the World Cup this sum­mer, ex­pect more big things from Tox­teth-born Nikita Par­ris. The am­bi­tious 25-year-old striker this year moved from Manch­ester City to French side Lyon, who are ar­guably the best women’s club side in the world, with the stated aim of win­ning the Cham­pi­ons League. Don’t bet against it; she’s achieved a lot so far and is clearly still hun­gry for more. She im­pressed as young­ster with Ever­ton, won the Women’s Su­per League, two FA Cups and two Con­ti­nen­tal Cups with City and was Eng­land’s lead­ing scorer in World Cup qual­i­fy­ing.
