Rioch Adds Trio To Ladies Squad

The club are delighted to welcome three players back to the Ladies with Megan Hassett, Sandra Craig and Katie Hassett all putting pen to paper this week after a successful training period.

Coach Jeff Rioch commented “I’m really pleased to bring in Megan, Katie & Sandra – all three are committed to developing as players and bring good experience, a will to win and they are all good communicators at training and on the pitch.  They all showed up well in the recent win over Hutchison Vale last Sunday and I’m looking forward to working with them.”

The side won 1-0 at the Saughton Enclosure with Jane Ritchie netting the only goal and Rioch is pleased with how his side have performed this season as they currently sit in fifth in the SWFL2 East.

“We’re looking to push on again in the second half of the season with a top four spot being the target although it will be tough ask. I’m delighted with the squad’s efforts in the past few months. Our numbers at training are good, confidence is growing and as the results show we’re conceding very little in defence, creating plenty going forward and they’re really working hard for each other.”

The team are in good form with four wins and a draw in the last five games with the intensity at training increasing as competition for places grows.

They have a break now before their next game away to title challengers Raith Rovers on 17th September.  This game will be played at Starks Park, home of their male counterparts and will be a tough challenge for the Ladies, but one which they will relish.
