In a league of their own, Bonnyrigg footballing sisters Natasha, Simone, Dion and Whitney McMahon have emulated their famous relative Darren Fletcher by pulling on the famous Scotland jersey.

Fast making their mark in the footballing world, the girls share their talent with the Manchester United star, who is both a role model and ‘cousin once removed’.

The McMahons are already on their way to becoming the first family in the country to boast four sisters playing for the national football squad. The girls all dream of becoming professionals in women’s football, which is the fastest growing sport in the world.

Darren – the son of their dad’s cousin – is a big supporter of Natasha (16), Simone (14), Dion (13) and Whitney (12) and has been on hand to offer the girls all the advice they need.
