Mayor congratulates ‘Our Lucy’

On behalf of Alnwick Town Council and the residents of Alnwick, Town Mayor Councillor Geoff Watson has congratulated local hero Lucy Bronze following her role in England Lioness’s historic victory in the UEFA Women’s Euro Cup.

Geoff commented “As our Northumberland girl, we have watched with pride your progress from the Alnwick Town Under – 11 team, through the Junior and Senior teams at Sunderland, your success with other top clubs, and a host of achievements and awards which have now culminated in a magnificent Wembley win over one of the best teams in the world”.

He went on to say “Lucy, you are truly an inspiration to thousands of young girls across the UK and particularly so to girls in Northumberland who, “want to be like Lucy Bronze”. Everyone in Alnwick, and across Northumberland, are delighted with your victory and are looking forward to the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup and hearing the Lionesses roar again!”
