Scottish Women's Premier League side Forfar Farmington received a double boost today with the double signing of Scotland Under-19 captain Rachael Small, and club stalwart Avril Gourlay following a six month break from the game.
A near permanent fixture in the National youth sides since 2007, Rachael has previously skippered the Under-17s on numerous occasions prior to being appointed Under-19s captain for Shelley Kerr's side's successful European Championship qualifying mini-group in Bulgaria last year.
Avril had been a mainstay of the Farmington first team since its conception many years ago. Her return after a six month hiatus represents a major boost for everyone at the club. The addition of Rachael and Avril to the Farmington ranks furthers the first team's preparations ahead of the forthcoming SWPL season, with the vast majority of last season's squad returning for the new campaign.
Speaking on the first team's preparations for their first foray into summer football, Head Coach Mark Nisbet commented: "I am delighted with how the squad is developing and the quality combined with experience that we have added should stand us in good stead for the upcoming season.
"The signing of Rachael shows the ambition of the club and the ability and experience that Avril brings to the side speaks for itself. I am eagerly looking forward to working with both players to improve on last season's league campaign."
