Vauxhall Women’s International Challenge Match
Scotland v Sweden
Saturday 26th May 2012, kick-off 3pm
Stark’s Park, Kirkcaldy
Children from two Kirkcaldy schools will be cheering on Scotland women on Saturday after showing off their singing skills.
The primary six class from Kirkcaldy West and the primary fives from Kirkcaldy North came out top in a competition amongst Fife primary schools to create a video of themselves singing the national anthem.
Scottish FA east region girls' and women's football development officer, Sam Milne, and Fife active schools co-ordinator, Liz Anderson, have been actively promoting the match in the Tayside and Fife area, and organised the competition to win tickets to the match.
Sam Milne said: "We were so impressed by the effort the pupils put into the competition. As well as showing us their singing skills, they created some fantastic drawings and flags.
"The children are thrilled to be coming along to the match on Saturday. We have been going round local schools telling pupils and teachers about the match and more about the Scotland women's national team.
"It's so exciting to welcome both the Scotland and Sweden teams to Fife. Crowds at Scotland women's matches have been growing in recent years and we really want to get 2000 people along to Stark's Park on Saturday for what promises to be an exciting match."
Saturday's match against Scotland national coach Anna Signeul's home country comes ahead of the next UEFA Women's Euro qualifier against Israel at Tynecastle Stadium on Saturday 16 June.
Sweden finished third in last year's FIFA Women's World Cup, and will host the finals of the UEFA Women's Euro next summer.
