S11E16 SWNT World Cup Preview Special

There was a last minute change in host as regular guest special host John B had to call in sick. With none of the regular Podcast team available, Leading The Line Podcast host Chris Marshall kindly stepped into the hosts chair and was joined by regular SWPL commentator Stuart Mitchell.

The guys discuss the excitement and anticipation of the Scotland Women’s National Team’s upcoming World Cup Qualifying matches against Hungary on Friday and Faroe Islands at Hampden on Tuesday. It is Pedro Martinez Losa’s first matches since taking over from Shelley Kerr in the summer and he’s had to deal with a series of call offs, most notably to Caroline Weir, Kirsty Smith, Lucy Graham and Lisa Evans. The impact of those withdrawals are discussed but there is still a positive feeling that the squad we have is still capable enough of getting six points. With top seeds Spain still to come, these points are vital.

As mentioned, the Women’s side are now playing their qualifying matches at Hampden, and with tickets at just £10 per adult, £5 for kids and FREE entry for Scotland Supporters Club members, it is hoped that the stature of playing at the National Stadium will bring in better crowds over time. Chris and Stuart round off by discussing the SWPL season so far.
