When Rachel Harrison made the short move across town from Boroughmuir to join Shelley Kerr’s Spartans squad back in March 2010 little did the 20 year old think that more than a decade later, she would be on the brink of achieving a historic milestone at the Ainslie Park club.
A former Scotland Under 19s goalkeeper, who earned ten caps and two clean sheets during her year long spell as International age-grade shot stopper, will pull her gloves on for the 200th time this Sunday as the side take on Hearts in their first home match of the 2021 campaign.
Spartans been drawn in Group C of the SWPL Cup alongside Glasgow City, Hamilton and Glasgow Women.
Debbi McCulloch’s side will kick off their fixtures hosting newly promoted Hamilton at Ainslie Park on August 8th.
The term legend is often misused or overegged. But when it comes to describing a player who has devoted almost all of her career to one club and became a role model for aspiring young females at Spartans, the curtain is set to come down this Sunday on Bobbie Beveridge’s eleven year top-flight career. Read our exclusive interview with Bobbie as she gets set for one final game in a bid to bow out on a high.
Congrats to Lily Graham on her Scotland School’s Squad call-up for this weekend’s International against England in Newcastle.
The Portobello High School pupil has fitted in well as part of Debbi McCulloch’s SWPL side following her move up from the Under 19s. She made her top flight debut as a substitute against Forfar Farmington on the 23rd May.
We’re delighted to confirm that Alicia Yates, Caley Gibb and Robyn McCafferty have been called up to the Scotland U19s for a post-season training camp.
Congratulations to Dion McMahon who made her 100th senior club appearance recently against Glasgow City. The defender, who becomes the 13th player to reach the milestone, joined the club in January 2016 and has scored a solitary goal, scored against Forfar in September 2018.
