A 10-year-old schoolgirl is being tipped as the next England football star after scoring 101 GOALS – in just 31 games.

Liverpool fan Hannah Jamieson has been dubbed ‘the next big thing’ by coaches after reaching treble figures in her FIRST season playing the game.

The hotshot midfielder, who plays for Stoke Town Ladies under-10s, is already well know for tormenting goalkeepers with her lethal left foot.

And she is so good that proud dad Chris, 43, has been forced to halve his promise to give her £1 for every goal she scores.

Hannah, who lives with her mum Annmarie Jamieson, 44, in Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffs., said she wants to play for England when she gets older.

She said: “One day I would like to play for Liverpool’s ladies team and it would be amazing to play for England as well.

“I love playing football and just seem to score whenever I shoot.

“Scoring goals seems to come naturally and I can’t get enough of hitting the ball into the net. I love it.”

Talented Hannah notched up her 101st goal on Saturday after she netted two hat-tricks in two matches.

Dad Chris, a baker, said: “I know everyone talks about how good their own kids are but when people see her play they are gobsmacked and understand what I have been saying.

“Football is her life and no matter what the weather she always wants to go outside and have a game.

“She has a left-foot that you would die for – people just think she is unreal.”

Hannah’s incredible goal tally has sent Stoke Town to the top of the under-10s North Staffs Girls League – with the side winning 27 of their 31 fixtures.

The team has scored a whopping 127 goals, with 101 of them coming from their star player Hannah – who has an incredible average of 3.25 goals-a-game.

Mum Annmarie, a parent support worker at Staffordshire County Council, revealed her daughter only started playing football three years ago.

She said: “I don’t miss a game and am so proud of her.

“Her brother Patrick, who is now 14, used to play and so she has been brought up with football.

“When you see her play it’s like she is mapping out the game in her head rather than just chasing the ball around.

“Although she is in midfield she just seems to be everywhere and will never stop running.

“I kind of knew she was talented from when she started to show an interest when she was about seven.

“She started to want to go to go the community football schemes they do in the school holidays and all the trainers used to say she was really good.

“I didn’t want to push her but last summer she said she would like to join a team.

“She really enjoys playing for her team and she’s got a brilliant manager who encourages them rather than shouting and screaming.”

Hannah is in her first season with Stoke Town’s under-10s team but Annmarie said she is already been ‘tapped up’ by boys teams.

Annmarie added: “I have been approached by several lads teams but she is quite happy where she is.

“She does play for a mixed team for her school and last year she played in a Year 5 and 6 game even though she was in Year 4.

“Hannah watches a lot of football on the TV and if she sees something she likes then she gets a ball and tries to copy them.

“She has always got a ball and having a kick about in the garden when she gets home from school.”

Hannah’s manager at Stoke Town, fitness tutor Dave Wright, 32, added: “With the right coaching she could be a future England player or play football in the Olympics.

“I am surprised a club hasn’t snapped her up yet – she is a very good talent.”
