A GIRL of ten has outscored Erling Haaland, Harry Kane and Kylian Mbappe combined by netting 143 goals in a season.
Striker Amelia Morris has to be substituted at half-time to give other teams a chance.
She did not start playing until eight because of a lack of opportunities for girls.
But she made up for lost time by banging in the goals in just 20 games for Gurnos FC in Merthyr Tydfil, Mid Glamorgan.
Man City’s Haaland, Paris Saint-Germain’s Mbappe and Spurs’ Kane totalled 125 in all competitions.
Amelia’s dad Jamie, 35, who coaches the team, said: “She’s kicked a ball ever since she was born. We’ve played all over South Wales and beaten pretty much every team and she’s just been incredible.
“At the start, she was averaging about ten goals a weekend but we had to take her off mid-game because it was too easy for us.
“At that age you want everyone to be having fun and it’s not that if you’re getting beaten by a lot. So we had to go easy on them by giving her a break.”
Amelia was gifted a T-shirt by her dad to celebrate her 100th goal of the season and Jamie hopes her success will encourage more children to get involved.
He said: “We’re all so proud of her. She’s only young but is doing so well.”
Amelia is the youngest of four children for logistics worker Jamie and mum Rebecca Casey, 34.
Jamie added: “Amelia is the best player in the family but I’m not sure where she got her talent from.
“I had a cousin who played for Wales under-18s but that is as far as it goes.
“She follows me in supporting Liverpool and she is obsessed with Mo Salah.”
Amelia is also a kickboxer and won gold medals at a world championship held in Cardiff last year.
