D&A College Student Wins US Scholarship

Shaney McCabe’s jaw nearly hit the ground when she was first offered her soccer scholarship to America. At just 18 years old and a student at Dundee and Angus College, she had never in her wildest dreams thought she would be snapped up to play in the States.

“I was just so shocked. There I was in the middle of playing a game with my club team against a team in Alabama and they stepped forwards and offered me a full scholarship on the spot.”

Shaney has just graduated with an HNC in Fitness Health and Exercise from Dundee and Angus College.

“I one hundred per cent would not be where I am today without the college. They have been amazing. Really supportive and the coaches, well they’ve just gone the extra mile.  There is nowhere else in Dundee that offers these kind of facilities either. I just couldn’t have done it without them”

And Shaney has certainly done it in style. Not only does she have her scholarship to Laramie County Community college/South Alabama University, she is a regular member of the Scotland women’s under 19 squad.

“My family were just as shocked as me, but now they are oh so proud even though I still can’t quite believe it”

Shaney leaves for America at the end of July.
