Queen of the South Girls Keep Busy in Pre-Season Action

Queen of the South Girls have been back in training since mid-July and with the season almost upon us, some of the teams were in action in the Edinburgh Cup at the weekend.

Pride of place must go to the U13 Girls who, having won their 6 team group, beat Forfar in the semi-final, and finished the tournament as runners up to a very strong Celtic team.

The U15 Girls Blues played in a group consisting mainly of performance teams. Despite having only 13 players in the squad due to holidays, and suffering a number of injuries in a bruising encounter with Bedlington that left Queens with only 10 fit players, the girls competed well against theoretically stronger opposition. The highlight of the tournament was a 2-0 win over an excellent Hamilton Accies side who are currently leading the Christie Murray league, and Queens were also leading Falkirk 2-1 with minutes to go until Queens’ lack of numbers on the pitch due to the injuries allowed Falkirk to grab 2 late goals against an exhausted Queens team.

The U15 Girls Whites were in a very tough group, but they started strongly against an excellent Hearts team. Despite taking a battering from, the Queens Girls defended strongly and managed to grab a goal to give them a 1-0 win. The Queens Girls were up against slightly older and bigger opponents in their group, but they competed strongly and showed that their current league position (sitting 4th as we go into the second half of the season) is well merited.

This weekend, the league season resumes, with Queens U15 Blues at home to Dean Thistle at NWCC on Saturday and Queens U15 Whites away at Kilmarnock.
