Buchan Girls & Ladies F.C. was formed in 2001 with just one youth team and has expanded over the years to offer girls and women’s football to players of all ages and abilities from the surrounding area of North Aberdeenshire. The club has over 55 signed players and around 30 young development players and count the current Scotland and Arsenal player, Kim Little (pictured below) as a former member. The club’s original home ground of Fetterangus was no longer fit for purpose and teams were having to seek alternative pitches to play their matches which was costly and unsettling for the club. In association with Fetterangus Community Association, the club’s dedicated Committee – all volunteers – decided to move plans forward to create a new community sports hub within the village and their hard-work and commitment has resulted in this fantastic new community pavilion which will allow the club to continue to grow and inspire and encourage more girls and women to become active through participation in football. As well as receiving funding from the SFP Trust, the new building attracted support from sportscotland as well as the Fetterangus Community Association, The Big Lottery, Scottish Hydro Electric Community Trust, Aberdeenshire Council and the FPL Turbine Community Fund.
