And the prolific Doncaster striker could be lining up for England’s U15s in Holland next week for a friendly with the Dutch national side.

Dad Tom Cain said: “I can’t begin to say how excited and proud I am of Hannah. She is a very determined and hard-working player who lives and breathes football.”

Mum Lisa Cain added: “We are incredibly proud. Her step-dad Paul and I travel across the country ensuring Hannah achieves her ambition in life which is to be a professional footballer.”

Hannah, also a talented hockey and netball player, has been footballing since the tender age of five.

She joined the Sheffield United Girls Centre of Excellence a year later and has also played in the Scawthorpe Scorpions boys team, represented Wales in Belfast at a capped U17 UEFA tournament and clinched a sports scholarship with Hill House School at the age of 11.

Hill House principal David Holland said: “The wonderful thing about Hannah is that, in addition to her fantastic football achievements, she has been very committed to everything else we do.”
