Georgia Stanway has become Manchester City’s all-time leading goal scorer after notching a hat-trick in the club’s 8-0 thrashing over Nottingham Forest in Saturday’s Women’s FA Cup fourth-round matchup.
With 64 Man City goals, Stanway surpasses Nikita Parris’s previously held record of 63 goals in City colors.

“I’m so pleased for her [Stanway] because she’s showing real hot form at the moment,” said Manchester City head coach Gareth Taylor following Saturday’s win. “She’s been great to work with, particularly her attitude and application to try new positions and affect the play wherever she plays. I’m really delighted for her today.”
Stanway has been with Manchester City since 2015, making her debut with the club at just 16 years old.
With Saturday’s victory, the City striker and the rest of the team advance to the Women’s FA Cup fifth round, set for Monday.
