The family of a teenage women's pro-footballer believed to have been struck and killed by a train have paid tribute to 'a vibrant, generous and fun-loving girl'.

Zoe Tynan, 18, played for Everton and Manchester City before joining FA Women's Premier League side Fylde ahead of the new season.

Flowers have been laid in her memory at West Allerton station in Liverpool, where the England U19 player is believed to have been killed.

In a statement released on Wednesday through British Transport Police (BTP), Zoe's family said: 'Zoe was the most loving and caring daughter and sister anyone could wish for.

'She was a vibrant, generous and fun-loving girl who always knew how to cheer anyone up, and was a loyal, straight-talking friend to many.

'She was a dedicated athlete, never happier than when she had a ball at her feet and was the ultimate team player. She touched so many people's lives and will never be forgotten.'



BTP said officers were called to the station at around 4.15pm on Tuesday to reports of a person being struck by a train.

They said an 18-year-old woman was pronounced dead at the scene, and that the death was not being treated as suspicious.

Her club issued a statement for Tynan, from Mossley Hill, Liverpool, who began her career at the age of six at Liverpool Feds before moving on to Everton's Centre of Excellence, spending six years there before moving to Manchester City last summer.

Fylde Ladies manager Luke Swindlehurst said: 'We all want to remember Zoe in the best possible way.

'A hugely talented player with the best possible attitude and an immensely likeable character. Our thoughts are with all of her family at this sad time.'

Martin Glenn, FA chief executive officer, said: 'On behalf of The FA, I would like to send our heartfelt condolences to Zoe's family. Our thoughts are with them at this very difficult and tragic time.'
