Cumbria Sports Awards

Georgia Stanway named as Cumbria’s Sports Personality of the Year for the second year running!

Barrow-in-Furness’s Georgia Stanway has had another fantastic football season. She adorned our screens this Summer as the whole nation was gripped to the TV to watch the mighty Lionesses play Spain in the final of the World Cup.

A key member of the England squad for a number of years, Georgia played every game during the 2023 World Cup.

Georgia currently plays professionally for German side, Bayern Munich, one of the top clubs in Europe. Earlier this year, she was nominated for the Female Ballon D’or, the highest individual accolade in world football.

Georgia picked up the prestigious Sports Personality of the Year award at this year’s Cumbria Sports Awards.

The Cumbria Sports Awards recognise the talents, commitment and successes of teams and individuals throughout the county who are involved in sport and physical activity.

And, the dedication and commitment of the huge numbers of volunteers, coaches, and others behind the scenes who make sport and physical activity happen.

In total, 11 categories recognise various levels of success, and the support services of volunteering, administration, and coaching.
