Rising star Grace Bullock has taken a step nearer her dream of making the grade as a top-flight footballer after joining Manchester City’s Academy.

Grace previously played for Burnley FC Girls but the Blessed Trinity RC College student is now loving life as a City slicker.

“I went for a trial in the summer and I got a place in the under 16 squad, which is fantastic,” said the 15-year-old striker, who lives in Worsthorne.

“I started playing about eight years ago at Pendle Forest and I love the game.

“Hopefully I can progress at City to the Development Squad and then make it into the full Ladies’ team.”
