A group of Spartans girls had to brave the weather twice during the recent Girls’ Progression Academy trials organised by the regional Scottish Women’s Football team. The first date turned into a washout halfway through the session and the girls had to be on the top of their game once again at the rearranged trial. The competition was fierce for places with the level of talent in the region at U11-U13 level (P6-S1 age groups) at an all time high. The SWF coaches running the sessions praised the skills and effort from all the participants.
The trials were followed by a nervous wait for the results, but our Spartans coaches received the fantastic news, this week, that four Spartans players were successful and Freya Brien, Rona Harvey, Dora Jakri (U11s) and Daisy Smith (U13s) have all now been offered places for the next three training blocks at the Girls’ Progression Academy.
Congratulations to all and we look forward to seeing Rona, Freya, Dora and Daisy develop their abilities as players with this great additional opportunity! Rona, Freya and Dora are pictured above.
