Peterhead meets Tennessee
In late summer 2022 a budding young footballer Piper Luhn visited the Blue Toon with her dad David. Piper and her dad were thrilled to get a tour of Balmoor Stadium organised by our Community Liaison Officer Natty Porter. Both enjoyed the tour and was impressed with the Hall of Fame for season ticket holders. Piper was then invited to train with Kevin O`Brien and James Campbell`s Buchan Braves under 12s, She said “the coaches and the players were extremely welcoming and the level of play was fantastic. It made us want to extend our stay.” Coach Kevin also commented “We remember Piper coming to train with us and it was a pleasure to coach her, she was very enthusiastic and we wish her well.”
Praise indeed for a young girl who plays centre back/centre forward for FC Alliance 2010 ECNL. They are the No 1 team in Tennessee and won state championship last year. They are currently ranked 22 in the USA. Piper also participates in the Olympic Development Program on the Tennessee team and leading scorer for her school team that won the area championship a couple of months ago.
All at Peterhead FC are delighted we made David and Piper`s stay enjoyable and wish Piper all the best for the future. A big thank you also to Kevin and the girls who are `flying just now` Keep up the good work girls.
