Motherwell Ladies FC is delighted to announce that both Emma and Jacqueline McLure have signed for the Under 15 squad for the 2016 season.
The highly sought after Livingstone based twins were previously with Hibernian but have opted to make the move to Lanarkshire after starting pre season with the Fir Parkers and being impressed by the infrastructure the club has implemented to develop girls football.
Emma was a standout in Motherwell’s 2-1 victory of Murieston last weekend and was unlucky not to notch a hat trick scoring twice only to watch her twenty-yard free kick hit the underside of the bar and bounce on the line before being cleared to safety. Jacqueline unfortunately missed the game through injury.
Both girls attend the Scottish FA Regional Squads and are great prospects for the future.
Both Emma and Jacqueline are fantastic players and we are so pleased to have them here at Motherwell FC.
After a successful two years with Hibs it was hard for the girl’s to leave their friends behind.
However, commenting on her move Emma said, “I really enjoyed playing with the team in the friendly against Murieston last Saturday and can’t wait to get stuck into the season ahead.”
Jacqueline echoed her sister’s comments adding: “I am looking forward to getting out on the pitch. The Under 15’s are a lovely bunch of girls and I am excited about playing with them.”
Linda Gibson, Girls Performance Centre Manager was naturally delighted with the Under 15’s latest acquisitions, “Both Emma and Jacqueline are fantastic players and we are so pleased to have them here at Motherwell FC,” she enthused “We will continue to nurture their talent and look forward to seeing them in claret and amber for many years to come.”
