Laura Montgomery: Scottish women’s football merits not just cash but media coverage

WHILE not every sports editor has yet to fully grasp the readership potential of reporting it, there is no denying that Scottish women’s football is on the rise.

Last season, my club – Glasgow City FC – reached the last 16 of the Champions League. If you didn’t know already, we are an amateur club, not by choice, and our players give up all of their free time to train, up to ten times a week.

In the end, we were knocked out by a side whose income completely ‘blows out of the water’ the entire budget for the whole of the women’s game in this country.

Are the achievements of my club deserving of investment and column inches?
