British soccer player: 'I love everything about City,' says Stokes

Stokes juggles parenting and soccer with ease--at least she makes it look easy

By Black Headline News


Demi Stokes says she loves everything about City which made her decision to extend her stay at the Club a “no brainer”.


Stokes, 31, is an English, professional soccer player who plays for Manchester City and the England national team. She previously played for Sunderland in the English FA Women's Premier League.


In 2012 Stokes played 13 games for Vancouver Whitecaps in the pro-am North American W-League.


In January 2015, Stokes signed a three-year professional contract with Manchester City. The Stokes has committed her future to the Club until the summer of 2024, which will bring about ten seasons of stellar service.


Only two women's players have made more than her 199 appearances for City since she first moved to the Academy Stadium in 2015.


During her time at the Club so far, the defender has lifted seven domestic trophies as well as being named in the PFA Team of the Year on two occasions.


In 2022, she also became the first female City player to juggle the demands of parenthood with professional soccer.


But those extra demands haven’t affected her quality on the pitch, with Stokes continuing to be a key figure in Gareth Taylor’s squad.

Stokes was disappointed to be left out of England's squad for the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup. She was restored to the squad for the subsequent UEFA Women's Euro 2017 qualifying campaign.


In the group stage of the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup, Stokes played left back in England's match against Japan where she helped England win 2–0. Stokes also played in the quarter-final against Norway, helping England beat Norway 3–0.


In June 2022 Stokes was included in the England squad which won the UEFA Women's Euro 2022.


Stokes was allotted 183 when the FA announced their legacy numbers scheme to honor the 50th anniversary of England’s inaugural international.
