NO matter who you are, or where you’re from, you can’t help but be charmed by the amazing Emma Raducanu.

The skill, confidence and composure of one so young was really refreshing. If you are not sure who I am talking about, this young women created history when she broke the 44-year wait for Britain to have a women’s Grand Slam singles champion since Virginia Wade back in 1968.

And she did it in style with a lot of firsts to her name: the first qualifier in the Open era to win a Grand Slam and the first woman to win the US Open without dropping a set since Serena Williams in 2014.

It’s so refreshing to see the great coverage from all areas of the media and the confident and happy way she spoke to them all, enjoying every minute in the media spotlight.

Changed days indeed – and not before time.

Currently making headlines – although it’s just under 50 years since she was a player and made sporting history – Rose Reilly is experiencing a renaissance in the media spotlight.

With a film under her belt created by Margot McCuaig from Purple TV and featured on Alba, she is now the subject of a play on at Oran Mor, Rose, by Lorna Martin, which was a sell-out and is now going to tour throughout Scotland.

Both the film and the play are based on the real-life story of Rose and her amazing journey, from playing football in the streets with the boys, to becoming a professional footballer in Italy in the 70s, and then being voted the greatest female footballer in the world.

With more and more awareness of our past “sheroes” we can only be amazed at what Rose achieved in her life, without any of the support and finance that is currently winging its way to Emma Raducanu.

Currently we have a crop of young women playing their hearts out, representing Scotland on the world stage.

With a great opening game winning 2-0 over Hungary, their next foray is at Hampden Park tomorrow night, and as always supporters make the difference.

Creating a few more “sheroes” along the way, Erin Cuthbert and Martha Thomas were the goal scorers on the opening game night.

What delights me is having googled the game, I can see that there are lots of reports in the media and the game itself was live on Alba. Changed days indeed!
