New Strip And A New Home. All We Need Now Is Some Good Wins!

Last updated : 29 September 2011 By Ed_Scottishfitba

Scotland Women’s A squad will be welcoming their counterparts from Northern Ireland to McDiarmid Park, Perth, on Sunday 31 July. This will form part of their preparations for the World Cup qualifying campaign. The game kicks off at 2 pm, with admission set at £3 for adults and £1 for concessions. The game will be Scotland's last before their first World Cup qualifying game, against Russia on Sunday 28 August at Moskvich Stadium in Moscow. Their first home game of the campaign will be against Republic of Ireland on 25 September, back at McDiarmid Park. Scotland's new national Coach Anna Signeul is looking for a good performance ahead of the campaign starting in August. She said: "We are excited about the challenge ahead of us, this is the first time Scotland has qualified to participate at this level of competition, which is the result of a major commitment from the players and everyone involved with the programme over the past few years. We are happy with our preparation for the qualifiers and look forward to some highly competitive games ahead."

The game against Northern Ireland will see the women debut appearance in their new home kit that has been specially designed for the women's team by Diadora. Another change for the women will be a new home. After many months of using Almondvale as their base, the women's national side will now use McDiarmid Park as their official base, and St Johnstone's managing director, Stewart Duff, said: "We are delighted to welcome to McDiarmid Park the women’s teams representing Scotland and Northern Ireland. This is obviously a big year for our women’s squad with World Cup Qualifying Games commencing shortly and everyone at St Johnstone Football Club wishes Anna and her squad every success."
