Our under 13’s have made history by being the first ever Glenrothes Strollers girl’s team to reach a cup final. The girls beat a strong Dunfermline team in their semi final tie last weekend to book their place in under 13’s East League Cup final against defending champions, Bayside 13’s, this Saturday coming (June 4th).
The girls section was founded exactly six years ago this month, so what a great way to mark the occasion by reaching a final. Let’s hope our girls can go one better and lift the trophy too! If everyone gives their all on the day, as they have done so often this season, there is every chance they will be holding the trophy come Saturday afternoon. There is no doubt that the team have the ability to beat their more fancied opponents and a chance like this doesn’t come along very often in life.
Win or lose, there is no doubt they deserve their day in the final and should be proud of just getting to the showpiece game.
The match will take place at Riverside Academy, Dundee, on Saturday with a 12 noon kick-off. If you are at a loose end this weekend why not come and give the girls your support and hopefully help spur them on to bringing the trophy back to Glenrothes.
Whatever the result, we will be having a Barbecue back at Overstenton after the game to mark the occasion – so please come along if you can. Although there should be enough to go around, you’d be best to bring your own food and drink as we will have a limited amount available.
Good luck girls – do us proud!
