SWF TV: A new dawn back in 2012
When The Away End tested a Scottish women's football TV show
|Sep 29, 2020||1|
Eight years ago, a new dawn was set to emerge with the launch of a Scottish women’s football TV show.
Two pilot episodes were created by The Away End.
Sadly, a regular TV show didn’t come out of it, but watch back as the fresh faced kids from the BA (hons) Sports Journalism degree from the University of the West of Scotland gave TV presenting a try.
Rachel Corsie was but a young Glasgow City defender at the time, sponsored by The Away End. Rachael Boyle was still Rachael Small, strutting her stuff at Forfar Farmington. And Kim Little had just bagged her first Scotland hat-trick.
Episode One - July 2012
We were there at the beginning and end of Glasgow City's League Cup campaign, with highlights of their first round win over Kilmarnock and post-match reaction after they beat Spartans in the final.
Spartans also give the crossbar challenge a go, we interviewed Kim little, and we were at Hampden for both the launch of the 'First Ladies of Scottish Football Exhibition' and the 'Breakthrough Scotland' partnership.
We also caught up with future Scotland captain Rachel Corsie, and Cheri Burns looked at the role the media play in promoting women's football.
This season we’ll have unrivalled coverage of the Scottish Women’s Premier League. Subscribe now to Anyone’s Game and it’ll cost just 60p a week.
Episode Two - September 2012
Scotland needed just one point to make the play-offs for Euro 2013, with an outside chance they could still qualify automatically. Glasgow City were in the last 32 of the Champions League.
We previewed those huge games, as well as chatting to Forfar's Rachael Small, and Glasgow City were next to take on the crossbar challenge.
