Iffy met with the Accies WFC youth players during training at Hamilton Palace Sports Ground tonight.
She was put through her paces by the players during a question and answer session lasting about approximately 25 minutes.
The kids afforded Iffy with some fantastic questions such as:
What inspired you to play football?
Have you always wanted to play football and why?
What did it feel like to be part of Team GB?
What was the Olympic village like?
Following the question and answer session, girls had the opportunity to chat with iffy on an individual basis, to get pictures and autographs.
Accies Head of Academy Lynsey Hogg looked after Iffy on the night and was delighted that such a high profile player had come down to see the kids.
“Its great that Iffy and the Scotland National Team have such a fabulous, positive outlook on integrating with the kids through the Role Model programme. I know the levels of excitement we generated just by telling the players that Iffy was coming but actually seeing her here and answering all their questions has been fabulous, she was so good to have around and the kids absolutely loved her. We’d really enjoyed her visit and would hope that more of her National Team buddies will pop along again!”
Lynsey organised the evening with Iffy along with her fellow Academy coaches and Club Chairman Derek Thomson was also in attendance. He wanted to thank Iffy and wish her all the best in a speedy recovery.
“I’ve watched Iffy play for Scotland for a number of years, and we jumped at the chance to get someone of her standing in the game along to visit our young players. Having her here and seeing the visible inspiration she gave to all our youngsters was out of this world.
It’s been a great evening and I am indebted to her for the time she gave up and of course to the SFA and National Team set up for supporting the Role Model Programme. It is a tremendously valuable and worthwhile experience for the kids and the club. Iffy is always welcome down at Accies, we’d love to see her again”
Accies Under 9s, 11s and 13s would like to say a special thanks to Iffy for taking the time to visit their training. We all wish her a speedy recovery from her injury and best of luck in the future. Hopefully, she will be able to come along again for a little kick-a-bout.
