LEGENDARY woman's footballer Julie Fleeting added yet another honour to the glittering array secured throughout her career on Sunday night.

She was inducted into the Scottish Football Hall of Fame, at this year’s annual dinner at Scotland’s National Stadium, Hampden Park.

It all began for Julie, whose married name is Stewart, at Ayr United where she served as club captain.

An exceptional footballer and ambassador for the women’s game in Scotland, she was one of five inductees to be honoured at this year’s glittering awards event, with Ayrshire also represented by former Celtic skipper Roy Aitken

Julie is Scotland’s most prolific goalscorer with a staggering 116 international goals in 121 caps. She captained the national team Scotland for eight years.

After leaving Ayr, Julie joined San Diego Spirit, becoming the first Scot to play in the professional Women’s United Soccer Association League in America. During two seasons in California she was voted Most Valuable Player (MVP) by her teammates.

She was an integral member of the all-conquering Arsenal Ladies side (2004-12) where she recorded over 300 goals, winning the FA WSL, seven FA Women’s Premier League titles, five FA Women’s Cups, three FA Women’s Premier League Cups and the UEFA Women’s Cup.

Julie was awarded the MBE in 2008 for services to women’s football.

Following nine seasons at Arsenal Julie returned to Scotland for spells at Kilwinning Ladies, Celtic Ladies and Glasgow City with whom she lifted the Scottish Women’s Cup.

She said: “I am thrilled to learn that I will be joining the Scottish Football Hall of Fame this year. The list of great names in the Hall of Fame is incredible.

“Women’s football in Scotland is improving year by year as demonstrated by the National Team reaching the World Cup finals next year. Hopefully the increased profile of the women’s game will inspire more women and girls to pursue the game that we all love.”
