23/01/2019

STAR LINE UP: Lynne Smith, Jenni Butler and Angela Bruce.

 

IT'S  Ladies Day at Balmoral Stadium on Saturday when Cove Rangers take on Strathspey Thistle in the Breedon Highland League.

The corporate lounge at the stadium will be a female-only zone as more than 80 guests enjoy the usual top class hospitality, which will include a quality meal served up by the club's official caterers Haar Rock Coffee.
A special PINK match day programme will also contain several features about some of the women who are playing key roles behind the scenes at the club.
The spotlight falls on Lynne Smith, Jenni Butler and Angela Bruce who are living proof that girl power is very much full on at Balmoral.
Lynne, who is also managing director of one of Cove's main sponsors, Central Coaches, has been a director at the club for more than eight years.
Club physiotherapist Jenni and Angela, Cove's first full time commercial manager, were brought on board last summer.
Lynne said: "The fact I was the first female director in the 90 year history of Cove shows we have always been been a progressive club.
"I was told they wanted me because they felt I could be an asset and it was the same with Jenni and Angela.
"It doesn't matter if you are male or female, if we feel you are the best available for a particular job Cove will welcome you with open arms."
You can read full interviews with Lynne, Jenni and Angela in Saturday's match programme.
It also includes the latest news on Cove Rangers Women, who have brought in two coaches to assist manager Vicki Paterson ahead of their new season, which kicks off next month.
And there is a feature on Francesca Ogilvie, the teenage Cove Rangers Women winger, who has been included in a Scotland squad that is set to take on England in Edinburgh a week on Sunday.
As if that isn't enough, you can read manager John Sheran's views on facing Strathspey and the programme also contains match reports and the latest team statistics.
So look out for our special PINK programme, which will be on sale at Balmoral on Saturday.
