Girls 15s to Play England in Anniversary Match

In celebration and recognition of 50 years since the 1st International game was played, after the ban on women's football was lifted, Scotland will once again play England at Ravenscraig Stadium, Greenock.

 On Sunday 15th May 2022 the Scottish School’s U15 Girls will play the English Schools’ U15 Girls by kind invitation of Inverclyde Council.

SSFA President Robert Allan , Vice-President Gillian Duffy, Councillor Jim Clocherty, Depute Leader of Inverclyde Council and Under 15 International player Millie Paton from Clydeview Academy launch the event at Ravenscraig Stadium

The women that played that day went on to have varied success and careers in football, the most notable being 17-year-old Rose Reilly, who went on to play for A.C. Milan and win the World Cup with Italy.

We are hoping that this current group of young women will continue to inspire girls to play football and that one or more of them will also go on to lift the World Cup.
