The Ladies 3rd XI playing in West District Division 2. The squad is essentially our Ladies development squad, with the strength and experience of some of the club’s, more experienced stalwarts. The youth and enthusiasm of the youngsters alongside our some past Scottish internationalists make for a talented and motivated team.
The team will be captained and coached by Rachael Ewing-Day, a club member for 18 years. Rachael has recently stepped down from the 1's and 2's squad and has full Scottish caps for indoor. Rachael also has responsibility for the Jockey hockey on a Saturday morning, and as the next developmental step from this is to the Ladies 3's she is well placed to nurture and guide our rising stars.
The 3's squad boasts a number of young girls who represent South West District at U-14's and U-16's level.
Training takes place at Glasgow Green at 6.30pm on a Tuesday, the session is taken by Rachael or Mark and consists of skills development practices alongside tactic games strategy work. Attendance is obviously encouraged and players maybe asked to step up the the Thursday night session as well.
The team consists of a number of mother daughter partnerships, students, teachers, police officers, U-16's and siblings. The progression is to play well consistently for the 3's and quickly move up to our 2nd XI who play in the National Reserve League. Throughout the season players may move between teams to ensure everyone is progressing and developing at the appropriate level.
