Double delight for Deveronvale girls
DEVERONVALE Girls have been crowned league and cup champions in a memorable season in the North Regional Girls' Football League.
The under-15s team ended their season on a high, finishing unbeaten for the whole campaign having scored more than 100 goals in just 18 games.
A club spokesperson said: "We have a special group of players here at the club.
"Not many clubs or players can say that for three years in a row they have picked up the league trophy, with two of those years being undefeated. For a rural club this is a massive achievement.
"Credit to all our coaches, players and parents for all the time and commitment that is given on a weekly basis to make the club a safe and enjoyable environment where each player can learn, develop and achieve to be the best that they can be."
Deveronvale Girls currently train twice a week and play during school term every Saturday morning, travelling from as far a field as Elgin to Stonehaven.
"We have a great mix of girls coming from various areas across the north-east, Banff, Turriff, Buckie, Keith and Huntly to name a few, where it brings communities together and friendships closer," the club spokesperson added.
The Banff outfit is always looking to attract more players and anyone wishing to come along can email email@example.com
Over the winter months the under-13 and under-15 girls' squads train from 6pm-7.30pm on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. Adult players are also welcome, and the ladies train from 7.30pm-9pm on the same evenings at Deveron Community Sports Centre.
The club has a number of girls involved in the North Region development squads which are run by the Scottish Women's Football Association, and have had international success at U15 and U16 age groups.
"Currently we also have seven girls who recently made the North of Scotland Scottish school team who shall compete against five other Scottish regions during the months of November and December," the club spokesperson said.
The girls now take a well-earned break for a few weeks before returning to training on the first Tuesday in December to get ready for next season.
