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.

The Scotland Head Coach said:

‘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.’

      It’s often interesting to go through articles about the game written in the lead up . . . . After the event . . . There for all to see is the worth of Scotlands sports journo’s . . . And the political lot are even worse.

    Btw . . . I reckon they will do better after the baptism of fire . . . Once again just before important matches Key Scotland players get injured. . . . This time Kim Little and Beattie. . . . For the blokes it was Snodgrass. . . . Coincidence?

      What about the obvious orchestrated injuring of our key players before major competition.
