New Year, New Project

Written by Administrator.

In 2015 The Away End will be no more.
However, while it heralds the end of one project, it launches the start of another.
For six years TAE have been on the scene, and we are proud of the achievements we have managed.
We have been lucky to boast some fantastic writers and journalists through the years, and it is little surprise to see many of the people who were once penning articles for this site now at the top of their chosen profession.
Jounalism is a tough gig these days. Students have never had it so hard trying to break into the industry.
The site was started by a group of journalism students at Glasgow Caledonian University as a simple Scottish football magazine. It was nothing fancy and the early designs showed that, but the goal was to show what they were capable of and create their own work experience opportunities.
They did, and more and more people wishing to show their potential to a growing audience got involved.
Very quickly, this little website grew and had people in the media taking notice.

Lauren McMurchie joins Hamilton Accies on loan

Written by Colette Carr.

Hamilton Accies Women FC has had a real boost to their squad in the shape of Glasgow City star Lauren McMurchie.

The midfielder will be with the Hamilton side on loan till the end of the season, and having only recently come back from an injury with her anterior cruciate ligament, she is excited by what the future at Hamilton holds for her in rebuilding her football career.

"It's really important for me getting back playing minutes," she said." Obviously I've been looking to get out on loan, and when I first heard about Hamilton being one of the main clubs that I could potentially come to I wanted to come here.
"I'm really looking forward to getting started with the girls and just getting back to playing really."

When the 21 year old was asked what she expected of her time at the club, she spoke of how Accies has been a popular club among her friends and how she thinks she will fit right in.

Neil Doncaster launches new SPFL set-up

Written by Thomas Mackintosh.

THE new body of Scottish football was launched on Wednesday lunchtime at Hampden Park.

The Scottish Professional Football League will take shape this season after a merger of the old the Scottish Premier League and the Scottish Football League.

The top tier of Scottish football will be named the 'Scottish Premiership' with the former SFL leagues taking similar names to that of the English Championship, League One and League Two.

Chief Excutive of the newly rebranded SPFL Neil Doncaster was joined at the national stadium by former Scottish internationalists John Collins and Graeme Souness for the launch of the new league setup.

Doncaster insisted that the SPFL was a step in the right direction, without having to be drawn on recent off the field issues.

He said: "We can now look forward for the first time, we have now obviously got all 42 clubs on board, play-offs a pyramid structure. So many things that supporters have been telling us for many years that they want to see."

Celtic to lose Victor Wanyama

Written by Editor.

Celtic received a bit of mixed news this week regarding player transactions that will impact the club directly in the coming season. On the plus side, it seems that striker Gary Hooper has enjoyed his time in Glasgow enough that he's preparing to commit longterm to Celtic. Hooper has generated interest from multiple Premier League clubs, including both Hull and Norwich City, but it looks as if Celtic will be able to hold onto the valuable English forward - certainly an encouraging bit of news moving forward.

On the other hand, news has also recently broken that midfielder Victor Wanyama will be leaving Celtic and signing a rather lucrative deal with Southampton. It's not the most shocking news. This is a guy who started his career playing barefoot and made it the pros by age 17! We're not sure if he merely keeps getting better boots or if he discovered the benefits of lenses at Acuvue, but his continued improvement has been obvious in his time at the Celtic, so it's no surprise that the Premier League came calling.

Scotland face Northern Ireland on road to Women's World Cup

Written by Andrew Southwick.

SCOTLAND will face a home nations clash with Northern Ireland in their bid to qualify for the 2015 Women's World Cup in Canada.
Anna Signeul's side will also travel to her homeland of Sweden, as well as Poland, Bosnia and the Faroe Islands.
The Scots, who agonisingly missed out on Euro 2013 to an injury time goal away to Spain, faced Northern Ireland last year in an emphatic 5-1 friendly win in Belfast.
The biggest challenge in group 4 will come from Sweden, who defeated Scotland 4-1 in a friendly at Stark's Park in May 2012.
