Dyce Girls FC is a new girls development age group playing in the SWF North Region football festivals.
The £500 award has gone a long way towards providing some of the training equipment required to ensure the girls can suitably develop their skills.
This award means a great deal to the newly formed club as financing such a venture is increasingly difficult in these times of austerity.
The Club now has the basic training foundation so that it can go forward, develop the club and provide a platform for the girls to fall in love with the game and hopefully lead to a life long passion for the game.
Without this award it would have been difficult to both keep the players and attract others to come to the Club.
Well done girls!
The girls team are delighted to be supplied with a new kit by generous sponsors Grampian Continental. The girls have been enjoying playing on a Sunday morning at the Sports Village and now will look the part as well as playing it!
A big thank you to Grampian Continental for helping our girls team continue to grow at a rapid rate!
Keep up the good work girls
Dyce Girls met Pittodrie tour guide Alec, who showed them around the stadium. The tour began with a brief history of Aberdeen Football Club and an introduction to Aberdeen Football Club Community Trust. The girls were then shown the Players’ Lounge. Unfortunately, the majority of the players were away training but they did meet three youth players. Next stop was the corporate areas where the girls were told about some of Aberdeen’s past players and managers before being given a view of the stadium from the BP box.
The girls were also shown the Kit Room, the Boot Room (which was very smelly) and then took the short walk from the Dressing Rooms to the pitch, and sat on the substitutes’ bench. The tour finished with a visit to the Board Room.
On leaving the stadium, the girls were excited to see the Aberdeen players and manager, Derek McInnes, return from training, with Mark Reynolds stopping to sign autographs.
The Girls had a brilliant day and a big thank you to Aberdeen FC for making the day happen
Dyce Girls FC attended Pittodrie on Saturday 12/03/16 courtesy of Aberdeen FC to watch Aberdeen v Kilmarnock.
The girls all had a fantastic time cheering on Aberdeen to a 2-1 victory. There was lots of singing and jumping up and down as Aberdeen scored.
The girls were also very pleased to get up close to Sammy the Seagull and Donny the Sheep who came over to say hello.
A great time was had by all and the girls were extremely well behaved, well done girls
Dyce boys club are the recipients of the SFA Quality Mark Community Club which was presented prior to the Aberdeen v Celtic clash at Pittodrie. This followed a successful alliance with Dyce Girls, Dyce ITC Hydraulics and Dyce Juniors to form the new Dyce Sports Community Trust

This is another step forward in the development of the boys club which was only possible due to the cooperation of the other clubs in the trust
Dyce Girls FC Meet Rachel Corsie
Seattle Reign FC, Scotland Women defender and Aberdeen’s own Rachel Corsie, came along to the North Region Girls Football League (NRGFL) event at Aberdeen Sports Village on Sunday 6th December 2015. Rachel chatted with the girls, had her picture taken with them, signed football boots and took part in a question and answer session. The girls were all very excited to meet her and will hopefully be inspired by her successful football career.
Dyce Girls FC First 4 v 4 Match
On Sunday 8th November 2015, Dyce Girls FC competed in their first SWF 4 v 4 Fun Festival at Aberdeen Sports Village. Camille, Dolci, Elle, Erin, Lily, Madison, Nieve, Niamh, Rose, Sarah and Sophie, donned their blue and white strips and formed 2 teams (Dyce 1 and Dyce 2) that played against Kintore, Stonehaven, Glentanar and Ellon.
The enthusiasm from the girls was fantastic. They were all very keen to get on the pitch and show off the skills they had been practising at their training sessions. It was encouraging to see the girls making some great passes, good saves and score some goals. A fantastic effort all round for the girls first ever matches.
A big well done to all of the girls and Head Coach Kayleigh McKenna. Also an extra special thank you to Kayleigh’s husband Kenny, for assisting her with the coaching on Sunday.
The girls are looking forward to the two remaining 4 v 4 Fun Festivals of 2015 on Sunday 22nd November and Sunday 6th December.
Well done girls!
