18s NAP celebrated the end of their season fairing well in a very competitive league. Credit to the girls for their continued hard work and commitment throughout.

Our women celebrated their fantastic season, winning promotion to SWFL1 for 2023/24. It has been great to see familiar faces return to competitive football at the club and we finished top of the North league, however due to play off places we had a final hurdle to reach our goal.
We move into 2023/24 season to the performance pyramid and winter calendar. They were all presented with club medals and look forward to the challenge ahead.

The squad knew what was required yesterday as we travelled to Stonehaven, knowing a point would clinch the title and right from the first whistle, they were brilliant. Just 4 minutes in, Alex Fox played a through ball to Cheryl Kilcoyne, who created a yard of space before shooting from distance into the bottom left hand corner.
The second goal came not long after when Caitlin Colquhoun played a 30 yard pass right through the Stonehaven team. Cheryl did well to run in behind, take a touch and fire the ball into the bottom left hand corner to make it 0-2.
We pushed and pushed, enjoying the majority of possession and could have scored several more but were unlucky in the final third.
We did make it 0-3 when Alex found Chloe Laird at the back post from a corner kick and she bulleted in the header.
Not long after, Chloe got her second goal of the game from another corner kick as she knocked home the loose ball after a scramble in the 6 yard box.
In the second half, Forfar made 7 changes which meant the squad all got a run out and everyone gave 100% and worked together as a team.
Cheryl picked the ball up in the middle of the park, beat a couple of the Stonehaven players before playing Claire Hendry through on goal. Claire took the ball around the keeper before passing the ball into the empty net.
Not long after, Claire had a fantastic shot saved by the Stonehaven keeper, however Chloe Dunn reacted quickest and slotted the ball home to make it 0-6.
Stonehaven made the most of their opportunities when a loose ball was played in behind the our defence. The Stonehaven player shot to which Leah Wood saved, however the keeper couldn’t prevent the second shot that came right after, 1-6.
Stonehaven were then awarded a penalty for a handball in the box which was well converted to finish the scoring 2-6.
The 3 points meant that we are BIFFA SWFL North League Champions
Thank you to all our supporters for making the trip to Mineralwell Park .
