CARLUKE football ace Sarah Crilly (19), of Samson Crescent, will soon be lining up in her home town when she and the rest of her Hamilton Accies Ladies team-mates play Scottish Women’s Premier League (SWPL) matches.

For it has just been decided that Accies Ladies will play their home league fixtures at the new £3.5 million John Cumming Stadium in Carnwath Road.

Sarah’s dad James, who is Accies Ladies’ development manager, said: “This move to the Cumming Stadium came about as part of a Scottish Women’s FA initiative to have teams playing in stadiums rather than parks.”
