Kirby hits the headlines

8 July 2013

Royals striker downs Brazil!

Royals star Fran Kirby has caught the eye at the World University Games, with some superb performances for Great Britain!

The Reading FC Women striker started with a bang on Friday, scoring a goal and setting up the other in a fantastic 2-0 win over Brazil.

Speaking on her official Twitter account, @FranKirbyy, the prolific forward thanked Reading fans for their support - as numerous messages poured in to congratulate her on a display that was described as 'stunning' by some members of the press.

Fran, pictured (right) with team captain Michelle Hinnigan, was unable to prevent her side from narrowly falling to a 2-1 defeat to a technically proficient Japan side on Sunday afternoon - but will look to steer Team GB to the next round as they play their final group game against Estonia on Tuesday.
