Forfar Farmington star Amy Gallacher has said she is delighted with how 2015 has gone both domestically and internationally for herself.

The 16-year-old attacker has netted 10 goals in 19 games and assisted eight, meaning she has been involved in almost half of the side’s goals.

Gallacher has also been called up for her country at under 17 and under 19 level, taking part in Euro qualifiers for both sides.

Speaking about her year, Gallacher said: “I think this season personally has been my best season. My target before it started was to score at least 10 and to set up more goals which I managed to do so I'm really happy. Obviously my main aim though was to help Forfar stay up and as a team we managed to that deservedly.

“It feels great to be in the Scotland set up because everything about it is such a good experience and I've been given the chance to play against and with some great players. It keeps me working hard and improving too as I know I can't take the opportunity for granted.”

Team mate Jade McLaren will make her 50th appearance for Farmington on Sunday with Gallacher and Lindsey Dunbar close to reaching that milestone, and the striker believes it’s great all three have done so well.

“I think it shows that if you’re good enough you’re old enough, us three in particular have played together for years so it has been good to continue that in the Premier League.

“Although it was hard at the beginning with our team being so young, I think we've come on so much and hopefully we can compete more next season. Praise needs to go to captain Nicola Davidson for helping us so much.”

Farmington’s incredible nine game winning run ended last week against Hamilton, but Gallacher believes they can still be proud of the run.

She said: “The run ending was obviously gutting because it would have been good to finish the second half of the season unbeaten, but I think we still have to be proud as a team because it took a lot of hard work and no other team in the league has done it.”

Gallacher also wants to end the season with a win as they head to Stirling Uni this Sunday, saying: “It will be a hard game but we got a win last time against them so I don't see why we can't do it again. We all know it will be a very physical game but if we play like we know we can then we will end the season with a win.”

She showed a great maturity when asked about her future for next season, stating that where she plays next season will depend on where she feels she will develop most at, whether it is at Forfar or elsewhere after interest from other SWPL clubs and USA.

She added: “It's always nice to have interest from other teams and I think that shows how well we have done as a team not just personally. I've not made a decision about next season yet but I just need to think about where I could best improve.”
