Forfar Farmington’s Scotland Under 19 internationalist Amy Gallacher was disappointed not to qualify for the 2016 UEFA European Women’s Under-19 Championship Final Round.

Gallacher and her teammates won their opening game against Greece 1-0 before drawing 1-1 with Portugal meanwhile their final game against France saw the youngsters defeated 2-0 despite a spirited performance.

The Farmington attacker can be pleased with her efforts over the course of the Elite Round however as she was involved in both goals Scotland scored; netting the winner against Greece before setting up Chantelle Brown.

Amy said: “I was so gutted we didn’t qualify because we worked so hard for each other and gave everything.

“We were beaten in the end by a great France team and should be proud of how far we came.

“I felt I gave my best in each game and thankfully I managed to help the team throughout the tournament. We were just unfortunate not to qualify because that’s what we worked towards and fought really hard for and it’s disappointing not to do so.”

Amy now returns to Scotland where she will look to replicate her Scotland form for Forfar as they host some of Gallacher’s international teammates at Hibernian this Sunday. Kick-off is at 1:00pm at Station Park and admission is £4 for adults, free for U16s.

Meanwhile Forfar Farmington enjoyed a 2-1 bounce game victory over league rivals Spartans at their Ainslie Park academy on Sunday as they prepare for their next league game.

A goal in the early stages of each half from Tori Sousa saw Farmington get revenge for their league defeat last month with Jamie Lee Smith tapping in a last minute consolation for the hosts.
