A famous Premier League player has sent a Mayo girls soccer team a video wishing them well for the season ahead.

Manchester City winger Jack Grealish sent the Westport United girls team a quick video telling them to “keep up the good work”, “stay positive” and the “results and performances will come” their way.

Grealish moved to City from his boyhood club Aston Villa last summer for a British-record transfer of £100 million. However, the former underage Republic of Ireland international has failed to get a regular run of starts in Pep Guardiola’s side.

He had two guilt-edge chances Champions League semi-final second leg tie with Real Madrid, that saw Ferland Mendy clear his effort off the line and ‘keeper Thibaut Courtois save with his studs.

The 26-year-old has netted five goals with four assists in 37 appearances this season.

Grealish is on his way to winning his first Premier League title as City are three points ahead of Liverpool with three games to go.

His paternal grandfather was from Gort, Co Galway.

Twitter user Sean Hegarty shared the clip of Grealish saying: “A message of encouragement for @WestportUtdAFC Girls team from @JackGrealish. Well done girls and thanks Jack,” Mr Hegarty said.

Westport United said: Many thanks to @JackGrealish for your wonderful wishes for our Girls teams.”
