Club coach Gavin Tolmie said; “The Blairgowrie & Rattray Community Football Club – New girls Section would like to offer a massive THANK YOU to everyone at the Football Partnership. Without the award through their Growing the Game Scheme we would not have been able to fund new training equipment and strips for our new girls team. The award has made the girls look and feel like a proper team. The girls had their launch day at Blairgowrie Juniors Ground, at Davie Park where they were presented with their new strips from former Scottish Youth Internationalist Holly Napier”.
