Am I right in thinking the St Johnstone Women team is started out as Jeanfield Swifts?

 

I say this, because I see Jeanfield has a women's team?

 

What's the history?

Also, the younger age groups from Under 9’s upwards are still under the Jeanfield banner but with close ties to SJWC.

Yeah, the original womens team that competed as Jeanfield  became St Johnstone WFC after playing for a couple of seasons on the McDiarmid astro. 

Last year with a number of girls over 17, but no Under 19s league, and not likely to get a place with the Saints team, Jeanfield decided to form a womens team that would play in the Scottish Womens Football Division 2.  The team features a mix of youth players as well as those as who have played football before but taken a break and want back into the game, or step back from SWPL level. 

The pathway with the youth set up at Jeanfield is for the younger girls to progress into the womens teams. Of the 20 strong  Saints squad at present, 8 of them are players who have been with the club since at least Under 17 level, one of them has been with the club since Under 11.

They usually have highlights on twitter, or they used to. Can't imagine sticking that behind a paywall will increase views.

A disappointing 2-0 loss. Glasgow had two real chances and took them. Saints, despite creating a lot and testing their keeper, left with nothing to show for it.

Do Saints still have a women's team. Never heard much for ages. Mind you we get very little info re the club , youth teams etc.

At the player of the year will there be an award for women, under 16\17\18s etc ?.
