ANNAN ATHLETIC LADIES FC
The idea that a ladies team should be established at Annan Athletic F.C. was first suggested by Annan woman, Kylie Wilson, back in early 2017. It arose from a group of women getting together to enjoy a kick about for a bit of fun and exercise. Some evenings during the winter, the numbers training were as low as four or five but in recent months, with the support of a couple of coaches, the numbers have grown significantly and the decision was made to register players who wanted to be part of the club’s ladies team.
Two or three of the women taking part have even taken their coaching badges and are now coaching primary school girls on a Thursday evening from 6 o’clock for an hour.
The team now has almost 30 signed players and it has been decided that before the end of September, they will be registering the team with the Scottish Women’s F.A. which will enable them to play in the league next season, which begins in March 2019.
The ladies train on Tuesday and Thursday evenings between 7 pm and 8 pm at Galabank. Sessions cost £2.50 per evening and a first trial session is free.
On Saturday morning 29 September, there is a “Come and Try Session” from 9.30 am to 11 am. For anyone who wants to be part of this growing determination to develop the women’s game in our area.
