Youngster Bowie enjoying dream start to the season


By Colette Carr

With two appearances and a first senior goal already, Tegan Bowie is loving her dream start to the season.

The academy graduate climbed off the bench in the season opener against Glasgow City to secure her debut, before claiming her place in the starting eleven the next week when she marked the occasion with a fine finish from distance, and after being called into Fran Alonso’s side at the turn of the year, she is delighted with how quickly things have panned out.

“I just try to take it game by game and make sure I put a good performance in every week to get in the squad, and if I get a goal then it’s a bonus really,” she began. "Scoring in such a big win shows you can contribute in games but hopefully I can do it in more important games too.”

The teenager made the step up after just one season in the Hoops, having switched the green of Hibs for Celtic with now-assistant manager David Haley's Academy team. And having enjoyed a League Cup winning term impressing Haley, Bowie admits the progression has maybe come slightly earlier than expected.

She said: “It was an aim. I knew I could potentially progress to this level, which I am still doing at the moment, but I think being surrounded by all these amazing players has helped me and they’ve supported me a lot so it’s really boosted my confidence.

“I was nervous at the start and obviously a little shaky, but getting game time has really helped me to show what I can bring to the team and Fran has also helped with that too.

“I get frustrated at times, but I have to remember I’m still young and learning and can improve, but playing at this level can only help me grow."

Bowie initially linked up with the first team in January's preseason trip to Gran Canaria alongside her Academy and Scotland 17s teammates Chloe Warrington, Kate Nicolson, Rebecca McAllister and Paige McAllister. And having her friends around her in the transition has been a great boost for the playmaker, who explains it does make a difference as they step into the premier league arena.

“They know what I’m going through and I know what they're going through, so to be able support each other and also be in the Scotland squad together really helps, because we’ve got that relationship already."
