Two young footballers are making their mark for their school, club and country.

Goalkeeper Jodie Baker and midfielder Eilidh Austin, who both play for Rangers under-18s, were chosen by North Lanarkshire Council to front their Women and Girls in Sport Week coverage this week and have been praised by their school for their success in the game so far.

The former Wishaw Wycombe Wanderers players made it to the 2019 Women’s Scottish Cup final with the Ibrox side, where they lost out to Celtic.

Football certainly keeps them busy with the pair also an integral part of the Central Scotland Schools Select team.

And now Eilidh, from Wishaw, is on the cusp of a Scotland youth cap, having been selected to represent the Under 15s against England in an International Challenge match when football at youth level is allowed to resume.

Jodie, who hails from Law Village, and Eilidh started playing football at the age of eight-years-old and 10-years-old, respectively, and have kicked on since their primary school days.

They also continue to attend the Coltness High School ‘girls only’ after school football club, which was setup to encourage other girls to play football and compliments their school team.

Coltness High head teacher, John McGilp, is thrilled with their achievements so far and hopes to see them continue to excel.

He said: “I have been lucky enough to see both Jodie and Eilidh play not only for our school and Rangers, but also for the region too.

”They are excellent footballers and I am very proud to have them playing at such a high level and this being associated with the school.”
