Celebrating its fifth anniversary, Scottish Women and Girls in Sport Week is an annual awareness-raising week that seeks to promote girls and women in sport and to encourage them to get active.

This year’s event is specifically focusing on the health and wellbeing, particularly important as Scotland emerges from the pandemic.

Football plays such a huge role in communities across Scotland and along with the rapid growth of the women’s and girls’ game, Nairn St Ninian WFC is keen to promote all it does to keep people active and to foster a life-long love of the beautiful game.

Head coach Ross Hepburn said: ”Nairn St Ninian welcomes everyone to get involved in football.

Seeing the growth of the club and the game over the last year has been immense.

“ I would encourage anyone who wants to give football a go to come down and try it out. We have a great bunch of girls who all just love the game and come to training and want to develop and learn new skills, as a coach you just love to see that.”

Describing how important football is to her, player Deanna Lundie said: “Football is very important, you know when you go to football you forget about everything and enjoy having a kick about with your team.

“Nairn St Ninian has a great atmosphere, everyone gets on with each other and a great place to make new friends. I would encourage any women or girls that are thinking about playing football to give it a go.”

The team train on Monday and Wednesday from 6:30pm to 8:30pm from 11 years to senior levels. For more information phone Deanna Lundie 07842708199 or Ross Hepburn 07842958087 or visit the club’s Facebook or Twitter sites.
