To celebrate our American players we held our first ever American Thanksgiving Reception for family and friends of the Women’s 1st Team on Wednesday 27th November. It was great to have over 30 people attend a pre game hospitality that was arranged with our Development Office. After eating, the guests (which included alumni members Sophia Russo and Craig Patterson) listened to a short presentation from Director of Football, Stuart Milne, about the journey the football programme has gone on over the last 10 years as well as talking about plans for the future. Moira Sharkey also gave a short talk on the work that the Development Office do all over the world to support the University.
Attentions then turned to the Women’s Scottish Student Sport Cup match against Edinburgh 3s and what a spectacle put on for the girls as they ran out 9-0 winners to progress to the next round. It was a great occassion for the club to have so many family and friends come over to see them play and we hope to now make it an annual event in the club programme of events so that more parents from across all our teams can attend. To mark the special occasion, with thanks to the Saints Sport Marketing Team, the club unveiled it’s first Matchday Programme which we plan to roll out for home games next year.
