Just before Christmas that year we organised a friendly match against Midlesboro PFC.

2019 – Our first complete year
In February we took 2 Scotland teams to a friendly tournament in Leeds as a test of our progress.

In May we took part in our first International Competition – the first ever Tri-Nations tournament – involving Scotland, Norther Ireland and the Republic of Ireland – which  was organised as part of the Irish teams’ preparations for the 2019 EPFA Nations Cup.

Our result of one draw and one loss against 2 considerably more experienced teams, both of whom since qualified to participate in the 2021 World-Cup, is testament to the efforts of our players.

2020 – Where we are now?
We are currently in an intensive training regime under the guidance of a revised National Coaching Team headed by Craig Peattie and assisted by Steven Miller and Gareth Mitchelson.

The ongoing training and development of our squad continues with a particular focus on preparations for the 2020 Tri-Nations and Home Nations tournaments later this year.
