After hosting two training sessions for the Russian U19 Women’s side in April last year ahead of the U19 Euro Championships, the success of those visits has saw the Club being asked to host a similar visit by the German U17 Women’s national side as they gear up for the elite round of qualifiers for the U17 Euro Championships.

Yesterday, a visit by Scottish and German FA delegates confirmed the suitability of New Murrayfield Park and we will look forward to hosting the German ladies in the near future. The German elite group includes our own Scottish Ladies U17's as well as the U17’s of Norway and the Republic of Ireland.

A huge thank you to Davy Jones for making this happen and to Jimmy Graham for hosting the visit of the two delegations.

Blackburn United are thrilled to announce that the Club have been accepted as full members of the Scottish Football Association after an application for membership was approved by the board of the SFA and confirmed today by Chief Executive Ian Maxwell.

 

At the conclusion of a long and at times complex process, the Club were audited at the beginning of the year on all applicable licensing criteria contained in the SFA Licensing Manual (a document encompassing both a National and European regulatory system - see https://bit.ly/2tojDGZ) and were assessed to have met entry level criteria on all pertinent points involving first team football, stadia, codes of practice, legal, financial and administrative requirements. The Club’s license to compete in the Scottish Cup from next season onwards is now assured and marks another step in our continuing drive to advance every aspect of football in the community of Blackburn.

 

The Club would like to thank everyone who has helped make this achievement possible.

 

The draw for the preliminary rounds of the William Hill Scottish Cup is expected to take place in mid-July.
