Spotlight : Gemma Fay

One of the signings made by Scott Booth in the close season saw the arrival of the Scotland Captain and Number One Gemma Fay. With Scotland's crucial qualifiers coming up, Spotlight decided it was time to meet Glasgow City's new goalkeeper who has also picked up an acting credit in her career.

1) How have you settled in at Glasgow City?
Very well.  Everyone has been very welcoming and I am really enjoying working with Scott.

2) This will be the first time City have played Glasgow Girls. What do you expect from the SWPL 2 side?
I have never played against them, but I expect that they will be looking to be compact and difficult to play through.

3) Who have been the three best players you've played with?
Julie fleeting, Kim Little and my gal Jo Love.

4) Do you have a favourite save you've made?
I enjoy any save I make! They are all important in their own way!

5) Who were your footballing heroes growing up and what inspired you to become a goalkeeper?
I support St Johnstone  and I used to go and watch them play at McDiarmid Park.  I loved Alan Main, I just thought he was awesome.

6) How are you feeling ahead of the second half of Scotland's 2017 Euro Qualification campaign?
Really confident. We are looking forward to the next game and focused on securing 3 points.

7) Currently, you are sitting with an incredible 190 caps for Scotland. Do you have a particular highlight in your international career?
I've had some incredible experiences, but I believe the best is still to come...qualifying for Euro 2017.

8) You've also made your debut on the small screen, appearing in Sky Living's drama Rubenesque. Is there any chance of you taking the acting career further?
Haha! I would love to but it's something that you have to focus 100% on to be successful.  At the moment I'm 100% focused on football....but if something popped up in the meantime I wouldn't say no!

9) If you could play in your dream five-a-side team, who would you pick?
