Accies women back to business

Accies women have had a busy start to the season so far having already played 3 league games with mixed results. An opening day 2-2 draw with Forfar Farmington, a 7-0 demolition job on Falkirk Ladies and a 5-2 defeat to Rangers sees Kevin Murphy's side go into this weekend's league game with 4 points on the board.

Sunday will see Accies return to the John Cumming Stadium in Carluke where they will host a talented Aberdeen side. The premier team are looking to pick up there second victory of the season as they try to build on their relatively decent start to the SWPL however there will be one noticeable absentee in the Hamilton lineup with Helen 'Dibsy' Tempelton having suffered a broken leg during an Accies development team game on Tuesday night at Glasgow Green. 

She now finds herself on the sidelines for the remainder of the season. It's a devastating blow for the team but the dedication of the player and the club will be second to none on the long road to recovery. 

If you are looking for a game to watch on Sunday come along to the John Cumming stadium for a 2.15 pm kick off where you will be treated to a high intensity match between two talented and committed sides. Look out for Helen 'Dibsy' Tempelton's weekly column  in the Daily Record online, where she details the life and times of a professional female footballer in Scotland.

  1. Those of us less familiar with the women's football schedule may be pleasantly surprised to find they play through the summer. Plenty of opportunities to watch Accies women in decent weather...
