Forfar Farmington new signing Lauren Perry is delighted to be called up to the Northern Ireland squad for the upcoming UEFA Women’s Championship qualifier against Faroe Islands on the 18th September. 

The 19 year old goalkeeper reflected on another positive landmark by saying, “It’s brilliant once again to get called up for your country & an absolute honour, it is going to be exciting again for myself & I can’t wait to meet up with the team. 

“It’s always healthy competition with the goalkeepers at Northern Ireland & I am looking forward to that, I am looking forward to meeting up with the girls again. 

“This week will be a big week at training prior to going away & training with the squad next week in preparation for that Faroe Islands game, I need to make sure I am ready & prepared for camp.”

Looking back on her time at Forfar Farmington since arriving, she reflected & said, “It’s been really exciting for myself, the girls have all been welcoming & Forfar as a town is really nice as well, I am keen to progress my game ahead of the Motherwell game in October. 

“The standard of the league was what enticed me to come to Scotland, the SWPL is going in a positive direction & it’s improving all the time, various teams around the league have now gone professional. 

“I also knew the head coach Ryan McConville from back home in Northern Ireland who was able to persuade me that moving to Scotland was the right decision to make. 

“A professional contract is always something i’ve wanted, hopefully we can go & make a good account of ourselves in the league this season.

“I am looking to help the team out as much as possible when we get back playing, the aim is to have as much clean sheets as possible alongside picking up some points, we are looking for a good league finish. 

“I’m only 19 however I have a good football CV & loads of experience such as Champions League, Internationals, I am looking to bring that experience to the team which would in turn help the team out when possible. 

“There is healthy competition in the goalkeeping department at present, it’s something I am enjoying & hopefully we can bring each other on, I can’t wait for the new season to begin
