THE goal-den girls of tomorrow are celebrating Scotland's qualification for the World Cup and dreaming of emulating their success.

Members of Port Glasgow Juniors girls section have been inspired by their heroes after the ladies' national side made it through to the finals for the first time.

They booked their place on the plane to France next year last week after beating Albania 2-1.

Margaret Vize, secretary of the Port Glasgow Juniors girls section, said: "It's absolutely brilliant news.

"We've been going to the Scotland games for the last four years and they have only been beaten once in 10 home games.

"Our ladies have now got the bragging rights over the boys."

Margaret believes her players have the potential to follow in the footsteps of their heroes.

The club stalwart, who along with husband Colin won a prestigious 'grassroots game' award a few years ago, said: "When we got the award I said that night that in a few years time I'm looking to see all our players playing for Scotland."

Erin Cuthbert, who is in the Scotland squad and plays for Chelsea, has a soft spot for Port Juniors.

Margaret said: "When Erin was knocking on the door of Scotland squad she came down to the Juniors one rainy November night and had a picture taken with the girls.

"She's always kept in touch and gave one of our girls Taylor Coulter her top and signed her autograph for all the girls."

Three Port players - Casey-Leigh Finlay, Nevah Carr and Julie Braid - were asked to be ball girls at the national side's recent fixture against Switzerland in Paisley.

Meanwhile their club mates Taylor Coulter, Roma Kelly and Aimee Murray recently featured in the Telegraph after being snapped by Rangers.

Margaret said: "I can see another couple of girls moving on to other clubs.

"There are regional trials in January to chose Scotland creme de la creme and maybe not next year but in a few years Port Glasgow junior girls will be in there."
