To celebrate International Women’s Day, we look at five influential women from Scottish football who have changed the game both at home and overseas…

Lily St Clair
First goal scorer in the history of women's football

An international football match involving clubs from Edinburgh and London took place in 1881. Scotland's Lily St Clair scored the first goal in a 2-0 win for the Scots and is the first recorded female goal scorer in the history of the Association game.

Rose Reilly
Football star of Italian and French Football

A leading light of the European game during the 1970s and 1980s, Reilly won national league titles in France and Italy and would go on to star for the 'Azzurri', winning the unofficial Women's World Cup in 1983.

Pauline Hamill
First Scottish women to surpass 100 caps

Hamill enjoyed spells in Iceland and England during a successful career. She was the first ever woman to reach 100 caps for Scotland, and has since gone on to coach Scotland to the European Women’s Under-17 Championships in 2013.

Julie Fleeting
First Scotland player to score 100 international goals

The prolific goal scorer has enjoyed a trophy-laden career at club level including a UEFA Women’s Cup (now Champions League) medal with Arsenal Ladies in 2007. She is Scotland’s all-time leading goal-scorer, with an incredible 116 goals in 121 games.

Gemma Fay
Most capped Scotland player of all time

Fay made her senior Scotland debut, at only 16 years old, in 1998 and has since amassed nearly 190 appearances and counting for the national team. The current captain of the national team, Fay has become Scotland's most capped player of all-time.
