In 2011, there were 5 500 women registered to play football in Scotland. Now there are nearly 13 000!
By the time you read this we might know if our team has beaten England in the opening match in the UEFA Women‘s EURO 2017 finals in The Netherlands. Either way it’s a good news story to see such phenomenal growth in such a short time.

‘To start against England, I think it’s great to have that game. It will be a very, very, tough game for us but I think I’ts good to be right into the tournament immediately from the first minute.’
