Scotland launch national women's football academy - 20 May 2009 - Women's Football NewsA new generation of Scotland's talented young female footballers have been offered scholarships at Stirling University as part of the Winning Students network, an initiative which aims to put Scotland's sporting talent on the world stage.
 
The exciting development is the establishment by the Scottish FA of a national women's football academy based at the University of Stirling, which is Scotland's University for Sporting Excellence.
 
Among the first recruits to the academy are Lisa Evans of Glasgow City and Celtic's Christie Murray, who will take up scholarships in the autumn. As well as playing for two of Scotland's top sides, they are both Scotland youth internationals and are among 12 of Scotland's best young female players who will combine higher or further education with football at the national academy.
 
Launching the football academy, Gordon Smith, Chief Executive of the Scottish FA, said: "The creation of a national women's football academy is an extremely exciting and bold venture for Scotland. The facilities and staff at Stirling are outstanding and will help to take our national team to a higher level by providing the best possible coaching and sports science professionals. This will be an environment that will bring out the best in everyone.
 
Women's football is the fastest growing sport in the UK and the academy will be at the forefront of continuing this new and exciting era for our players and staff in Scotland. The Scottish FA will reap the benefits of this venture for years to come."
