Introducing – The Grangemouth Fillies

Away from the Club’s league news, the new Ladies team has been making good progress.

After a good deal of debate, the girls have agreed on the team name, the Grangemouth Fillies.

Over the past few sessions they have picked up a good number of new players and are now looking to get ready for competition. They have already secured a place at the Flagging New Year indoor tournament at Ravenscraig in January. Their current aim is to try to pick up a few more players in order for them to enter the BAFA Opal Series competition. The Opal Series game days will be played mostly in the Sheffield/Manchester area, with one game day in Scotland. The days consist of multiple games, so the bigger the squad of players, the better. The club have to be sure the players can commit to not just the travel, but with multiple full length games, the ability of the players to compete for a whole day’s play.

Grangemouth Fillies organiser Bethany Thomson said, “Lots of people are trying to get fit, but with no real aim in mind. Flag Football is a fun sport to play, it is non-contact and our team is ‘Ladies Only’. Player’s get fit without really noticing it. Our coaches have a huge amount of experience. They can get anyone ready to play really quickly.”
If anyone would like to try their hand at Flag Football, come and join in at one of the taining sessions on Monday evenings from 18:30 at Almond Terrace, Whitecross. Or contact the Club through their Facebook page “Grangemouth Flag Football Club”.

Any females aged 16 and over are eligible to play. No experience necessary as the coaches at the Club have a proven track record of getting players up to speed really quickly.
