Di­a­mond girls cel­e­brate their sea­son

Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - Sports -

Air­drie Ladies’ Katie Cameron has thanked the Di­a­mond girls af­ter a maiden sea­son that saw them come within three points of win­ning the league ti­tle.

Air­drie fin­ished off the sea­son with a fan­tas­tic 5-2 win over Brox­burn at the week­end, but it wasn’t enough to top­ple Black­burn who fin­ished the sea­son un­de­feated.

In a heart­felt Face­book post, Cameron wrote: “I am ex­tremely proud of the girls and the fight they have put up this sea­son.

“I am proud of the way they have con­ducted them­selves through­out the sea­son on and off the pitch.

“Their pro­fes­sion­al­ism has been sec­ond to none and their pas­sion for each game even bet­ter.”

She con­tin­ued: “This sea­son was about build­ing a squad to go and chal­lenge for the league next sea­son.

“I can cer­tainly say we’ve ex­ceeded ex­pec­ta­tions in that re­spect.

“We are un­beaten since March and have built a fan­tas­tic squad.

“I could not have writ­ten a bet­ter sea­son.”

Air­drie fin­ished the sea­son on 61 points with only one de­feat on the board.

A to­tal of 20 wins brought them ag­o­nis­ingly close to pro­mo­tion, but the heart­break didn’t stop the team from cel­e­brat­ing what has been a tremen­dous cam­paign.

Katie went on: “What a great day and night we all had.

“There will be some sore heads this morn­ing I’m sure.

“Thanks to ev­ery­one in­volved this sea­son.”

So close Air­drie just missed out on the ti­tle
