WATCH: Lucy Bronze has a kick around with Alnwick Town Girls

World Cup star Lucy Bronze joined youngsters from Alnwick Town's girls' section for a kick about, as part of the BBC's filming for the 2015 Sports Personality of the Year award.

The 24-year-old England and Manchester City player is on the shortlist for the prestigious accolade and is up against the likes of Davis Cup hero Andy Murray, Tour de France winner Chris Froome and gold medal-winning athletes Mo Farah and Jessica Ennis-Hill. The winner will be decided by a public vote on the night of the awards ceremony, which is Sunday, December 20.

Bronze, from Alnwick, shot into the spotlight after her two-goal heroics during the World Cup in the summer, which saw The Lionesses make history by finishing third - their best ever performance at the tournament.

And on Thursday, Bronze was at Alnwick Town - the team she played for when she was growing up - to play a mini game with youngsters from the girls' section. The BBC filmed the session and the footage is set to be shown during the Sports Personality of the Year ceremony.

Bronze has described being on the shortlist as a huge honour.
