City defeat Aberdeen in SWPL

Captain Leanne Ross had a part in all goals as Glasgow City defeated Aberdeen 3-0 away from home.

In a match dominated by the visitors, City Head Coach Scott Booth may have wished for more goals but was more than delighted with his side's strong display at a notoriously difficult venue.

He said, "The players were extremely focused today. They put into practice a lot of the things we have been working on in training. They worked really hard and with a little more luck, could have scored more."

Leanne Ross got City off and running on the scoresheet with a classic free kick finish from the edge of the box just before half time. The Captain was then provider after her cross was headed home by Noelle Murray after good initial play by Nicola Docherty.

Goal number three was scored by Savannah McCarthy as the Irish international defender rose highest to nod home another Leanne Ross cross.

City are back in action next Sunday as they face Hamilton Accies at the Superseal Stadium, 4pm.

Glasgow City make a statement with new away kit launch


Ten in a Row Scottish Champions, Glasgow City today launched its new away kit, a kit with a message.

Not only have the club moved to a brand new colour with new kit partners Joma for their away kit for 2017 of purple and white, the kit also features a message on the back of every player’s strip – You Can’t Be What You Can’t See.

The message is with regards to the coverage of our female sports stars and role models. Scotland has endless female sporting role models to inspire our future generation of women to be active, healthy and to work hard to achieve their dreams, but these role models are not as visible as they could be.

Statistics show the huge disparity in coverage of women’s sport in the media and unsurprisingly therefore the commercial investment in women’s sport is frighteningly less than that for men. (Women’s sport sponsorship accounted for only 0.4% of total sports sponsorship between 2011 and 2013). 

The Glasgow City away kit launch highlights the stats:
Women’s Sport makes up 7% of all sports media coverage in the UK

Just over 10% of televised sports coverage is dedicated to women’s sport
2% of national newspaper sports coverage is dedicated to women’s sport
5% of radio sports coverage is dedicated to women’s sport
4% of online sports coverage is dedicated to women’s sport
