VICTORY IS OURS: Celebrating an enjoyed win!

Demi Stokes will celebrate a City milestone, making her 100th Club appearance against West Ham United women in the FA Women's Super League clash.

The England star joined the Club in January 2015 from the South Florida Bulls, having started her senior career with Sunderland aged just 16.

Speedy, composed and feisty with excellent tackling ability, Stokes is a fans' favourite and Nick Cushing's first-choice left-back.

She has played a pivotal role in the Blues' recent success, helping City to clinch a sensational sweep of domestic trophies: the Super League title, Continental Tyres Cup and FA Cup, in addition to consecutive Champions League semi-finals.

She netted a crucial strike on the final day of the double-winning 2016 campaign to maintain our unbeaten league season with an equaliser against Birmingham.

Born in South Shields, Stokes signed for Sunderland's youth team at the age of eight and went on to make her senior debut in 2007. She played a part in the side that secured the FA Women's Premier League Northern Division and reached the final of the FA Women's Cup in 2009.

She remained at the North East outfit before accepting a four-year scholarship to the University of South Florida in 2011. The following year, she made 13 appearances for Canada's Vancouver Whitecaps before continuing her career with her college side.

The youngster tasted success on the international stage, having lifted the 2009 UEFA Women's Under-19 Championship and captained Great Britain to a gold medal in the 2013 Summer Universiade in Russia.

Now a regular name in the Lionesses' senior squad since making her debut in January 2014, clocking up 48 caps, Stokes also helped her country to the semi-finals of the 2017 European Championships.

Everyone at the Club wishes to congratulate Demi on her 100th appearances.
