Bury FC Women announce First Signing of Summer

Bury FC Women are starting the new campaign as they finished last year by meaning business in their summer recruitment, announcing their first signing in Georgia Walmsley.

16 June 2017

Georgia has played at 3 academies since the age of 10: Blackburn Rovers, Liverpool and, more recently, Manchester city for the last two seasons. A creative attacking-midfielder with an eye for goal, Georgia has left Manchester City to join the Lady Shakers

Georgia on signing for Bury FC “Stepping up to full women's football will be a real challenge for me but one that I'm relishing. I hope the excellent coaching I have had at three great clubs will stand me in good stead and help Bury FC to be successful. I have really enjoyed the training sessions so far with Bury and I have been made to feel very welcome by the Manager and players."

Manager Paul Iannaccone commented "We are very happy to bring in a player of Georgia's ability. We know what we need in order to make the push to the next level and we have identified 2-3 new players to come in this summer, Georgia being the first. I'm delighted to get it over the line and welcome another talented player into our group."

A big welcome to Georgia from everyone here at Bury FC!
