Ladies And Youth

Brora Rangers Ladies were set up to meet the demand for a women’s team in the Sutherland area. In the early years we trained regularly and played in friendly tournaments wherever possible. In 2019, for the first time in history, the Scottish Football Association agreed to help us set up a Highland & Islands League for Women’s football. Brora Rangers Ladies were instrumental in helping get this league up and running and manager Mary Stewart continues to sit on the League Management Committee. There were 8 teams took part in the league in the initial year and new teams have come into existence since then. The league runs from March until October during which time we will play each other home and away along with League cup and Scottish cup games. 
As the parents in the community saw the Brora Rangers Ladies training taking place, they requested that we do something similar for the children in the area and therefore we set up Brora Rangers mini-kickers. This has gone from strength to strength, and we have children from Brora and the surrounding villages training with us on a weekly basis. As the numbers have rapidly grown, we split the children into various groups and recruited further coaches to keep up with the demand.

There is a pathway for the girls to work their way through the mini kickers and up to the age groups competing in the leagues and tournaments. We are now looking to do this for the boys also to get them competing in the leagues. Our previous under 15 girls  are now in the ladies’ team and our older 14s from last year are starting to train with the ladies. Many of the under 12’s are moving up to the 14s this year and new girls have joined the under 12s.

With the development of the Highland League, these females can now play regular competitive football which is necessary to take them to the next level. With the recognised leagues now in place the girls in the North of Scotland will no longer be disadvantaged (as we have been previously) in terms of having their ability spotted so that they can go on to take part at a higher level. It is our hope that this will lead to many more International players coming from the Highlands & Islands in the future.

Being part of a football team is like being part of a family. As each new member joins us, they are immediately welcomed into a group of like-minded people who will be there to support each other. It is an excellent way to encourage young people to get involved where they may otherwise struggle with social interaction.

We welcome people of all ages and abilities to come and join us at football training and to take part to whatever level they are comfortable. While our home ground and training sessions take place in Brora, we have many participants from out-with the village. Our training is open to players from all the surrounding villages.
Our mini kickers (Primary 1 to secondary 3) meet on a Thursday night at 5.45pm along with our under 12 and under 14 girls teams. The Ladies train on a Tuesday and a Thursday from 7-8.30pm. Many of our older boys have now gone on to train and play with the Brora Wanderers as the next step.

We currently have over 50 females signed for the 2023 season with others still to be signed up. We have almost 100 mini kickers and juniors. The numbers are growing all the time as word spreads, and we are delighted to be able to provide this service for the young folks in  our community.
