Monifieth Ladies FC are very pleased to be associated with sponsors who give very generous support to all our teams. This support recently helped us purchase new kit and training tops for all our teams and to top this we managed to get Monifieth Ladies FC branded kit bags for all our girls.

We would like to give thanks to the people from Window Wizard and Whytes of Monifieth whose sponsorship is helping us ensure that our players have the best of equipment to help them in their development as football players.

The girls loved their bags and certainly look the part in training when they all turn out in our club colours.

Tie:                 League Cup Quarter Final

Score:             8-0 win to Monifieth

Following their narrow 5-4 victory against Raith Rovers the previous week, Monifieth lined up against Jeanfield in an intriguing league cup tie at Riverview.  Monifieth started the brighter although Jeanfield forced the first chance of the match, Louise Christie making a fine save from a Kara Mailer shot.  Monifieth asserted themselves midway through the first half and scored two goals in quick succession, Chloe Robertson and Emily Younger the counters, the 2nd after a fine 5-person move.  Younger then added her second and Monifieth's third before Georgie Simpson rounded off the first half scoring with an excellent solo effort.  Four-nil up at half time, Monifieth continued to dominate and added a further 4 goals in the second period with Younger adding another two and Robertson also adding two to complete a fine hat-trick.  Jeanfield battled bravely throughout a sporting contest played in a super spirit.

Kim Little in actionPFA Awards: Arsenal’s Kim Little named Women’s Player of Year

The 22-year-old has been a regular for her club since arriving from Hibernian six years ago. The Scot was part of the British Olympic team that reached the quarter-finals of the London 2012 Olympics.

A great role model for our players to look up to. Here she is scoring a rather nice goal for her current team.
