Our u14 squad had a brilliant first season at 11-a-side football in 2022, being pipped at the post by a point in the league, reaching the league cup semi final and getting to the quarter final stage of the Scottish Challenge Cup, losing 3-2 in extra time.
They now make the step up to u16 for 2023 and have bolstered their squad in defence, midfield and attack with four new signings, who we will introduce over the next two days.
The new players have trained well in the last few weeks and settled into the squad with three of them making their debuts last weekend in the first pre-season friendly v Aberdeen.
The squad face Grampian Girls this Saturday before playing Jeanfield then rounding off their pre-season fixtures v Hibs on 11th Feb. The competitive action then commences on 18th Feb.
The club are also thrilled to welcome Eve Crosbie to our u16 squad for the 2023 season. Eve marked her debut with a goal in our pre-season victory over Aberdeen last weekend.
Coach Jeff Rioch commented:
“Eve played at the u16 level last year despite being young enough for the u14s and she has shown why so far in training – she’s a strong, athletic, composed defender who likes to pass the ball out from the back and we’re looking forward to working with her this season”
Welcome to Farmington Eve!
The club are delighted to welcome Lola Robertson to our u16 squad for the 2023 season. Lola will make her first appearance in a pre-season friendly this weekend v Grampian Girls
Coach Jeff Rioch commented
” I watched Lola’s previous team three times last season and she impressed me in every game with her ability, athleticism and tackling, whether in a full back or midfield role and we’re very pleased that she has chosen Farmington to continue her development”
Welcome to Farmington Lola!
Our final new signing to our u16 squad for the upcoming season is Hannah Dishington, who returns to Farmington after a season away.
Coach Jeff Rioch commented :
” We are delighted to see Hannah return to the club and having played elsewhere at u16s last season she brings a wee bit of experience to the squad. Hannah has great pace, crossing ability and an eye for a goal and we’re really looking forward to seeing what she can achieve this year. It was great for her to score and get an assist in the first pre-season friendly”
Welcome back to Farmington Hannah!
