A FAMOUS face from women’s football was down in Irvine this weekend, visiting a lucky local team.

Glasgow Rangers Women’s captain Kathryn Hill popped over to the Circuit in Irvine as she hosted a training session with Clark Drive’s under 10 girls side.

It came after a superb fundraising effort from teams parents, players and supporters - which saw everyone benefit.

A number of initiatives saw the girls raise an amazing £600 - which was then halved between the club themselves and a charity of Kathryn’s choice.

The Rangers captain choose a charity close to her heart - Breast Cancer Now - and the team presented her with a cheque for them at the training session this weekend.

From nearby Dalry - it was Kathryn’s first visit to the facilities at the Circuit, which has been built next to where her grandad lived!

She was over the moon with the donation - and loved getting to speak to the girls and pass on her knowledge.

Kathryn even said she will be coming down to watch the girls play the next time she isn’t playing herself!

As another little thank you, she also passed on a signed top and ball to the club, which they will hopefully be able to use to raise even more funds for their growing club.

Now with 21 signed players at this age group, the team will be able to put two sides into their seven-a-side league for the next campaign.

And with the support of players with the stature of Kathryn, team coach Stephen Watson is hoping the girls can continue to enjoy their football even more.

He said: “It is good to get someone of that stature in and about the club and raise the profile of the club and of the ladies game.

“The girls really enjoyed it and Kathryn even offered

to come down and take another session!”

He added: “ Kathryn played locally for a team in Kilwinning who we play in our league. The girls can look up to her and hopefully try and get to where she is one day themselves.

“It was also good that we could raise awareness of the charity that is close to her heart.”
