Government funding to help Scotland
 Women's Football Scotland International News - 29 Sep 2018
The Scottish Government has provided around £80,000 of funding to allow the Scotland's Women's National Team to train full time in the lead up to the 2019 FIFA World Cup.
The financial support will allow those players in the national squad who are currently not professionals to train full time from January 2019 ahead of the tournament in France, which begins on 7th June.
The Scottish Government funding will be delivered to the players through the Scottish Football Partnership. First Minister Nicola Sturgeon confirmed the funding at Hampden Park ahead of the Scottish Women and Girls in Sport Week.
The Scotland Women's National Team Patron also congratulated the team on their qualification for their first World Cup, following a dramatic night in Shkodėr, Albania earlier this month.
Head Coach Shelley Kerr was joined by Hibernian players Joelle Murray and Jenna Fife along with Glasgow City players Leanne Crichton, Hayley Lauder, Jo Love and Lee Alexander. Scottish FA Chief Executive Ian Maxwell and Scottish FA Performance Director Malky Mackay were also in attendance as well as Scottish Football Partnership's Stuart McCaffrey and Jim Clydesdale.
Scottish FA Chief Executive Ian Maxwell told www.scottishfa.co.uk: "The whole of the country was delighted when Shelley Kerr's team qualified for the FIFA World Cup.
"We are determined to ensure that the squad are as well prepared as they can be going into their first FIFA World Cup.
"We are incredibly grateful to the Scottish Government for their support, which will undoubtedly help our home based players as they push to make the final squad."
Head Coach Shelley Kerr added: "It was an incredible achievement to qualify for our first ever FIFA World Cup.
"It was a special feeling but now it's incredibly important we focus on the future and how best to prepare for the FIFA World Cup in France.
"We are determined to start the tournament in the best possible shape and are delighted to have the support of the Scottish Government through the Scottish Football Partnership.
"We are in a fortunate position where a number of our players are already playing football full time and this agreement allows all of our squad to be at their optimal best when the tournament comes around."
