Anna stays on with Scotland
 Women's Football News 26 Oct 2008
Anna stays on with Scotland - 26 Oct 2008 - Women's Football NewsThe Scottish FA has confirmed that Anna Signeul has signed a new two year contract to remain as Scotland National Women's Team Coach until December 2010. 
The news comes as a timely boost ahead of this weekend's first leg of the UEFA Women's Championships play-off match against Russia.
Speaking about the new deal, Anna Signeul told www.scottishfa.co.uk: "I am absolutely delighted to be staying on as Scotland manager. The game here is growing at an incredible rate. More women and girls are playing, the leagues are much better organised and, of course, our National Teams are continuing to make their mark on the international scene.
"My thanks go to Gordon Smith and everyone at the Scottish FA. They made it clear from the outset that they wanted me to stay and they have shown a real commitment both to me and to the women's game.
"I very much want to be a part of Scotland's future success. With this new deal, I know I will be."
Scottish FA Chief Executive Gordon Smith said: "Anna is a top class coach who has been a huge success here in Scotland. She has been a key figure in the transformation of the women's game and her work has not gone unnoticed around the world.
"Thanks to the excellent job she is doing with us, she had an offer on the table to go to a major nation in women's football. I was determined not to let that happen. The fact that she has signed up to stay shows just how committed she is to the sport here in Scotland.
"We are in a major play-off for the first time on Sunday against Russia and I want to wish Anna and the players the very best of luck."
Anna Signeul was appointed as Scotland National Womens' Teams Coach in March 2005. Under Anna the Scotland squad has climbed to its highest ever European and World rankings - 15th in Europe and 26th in the World. The squad has reached the play-offs of a major tournament for the first time, and this year the Under-19 squad reached the finals of the UEFA Under-19 Championships.
