Success story – Lumsden signs for Arsenal.
EDSV Academy star Beth Lumsden has been given the chance to shine for Arsenal FC, after recently signing from Chelsea Ladies.
Beth set out on her journey with EDSV in 2015 with her mind set on chasing the dream. As Beth’s time at the Academy went on, she began to catch the eye of a few big clubs, whose attention grew stronger and stronger as her exceptional performances grew consistent.

When Beth’s first season with EDSV ended, it saw her help the women’s first team attain second place in Category 2 of the ECFA League, as well signing for Chelsea Ladies.
As the 2016/17 season kicked in it saw the EDSV Ladies team compete in the top category of the ECFA in only their third year of running. This added pressure on to the star performers of the previous season such as Beth to perform, as well as lead the team to a successful season. Under this added pressure Beth only exceled. The 2016/17 season saw Beth help EDSV attain the Category 1 league title and her consistent, skilled performances attracted some attention. As her second season with EDSV closed, she signed with Arsenal Ladies.

After signing, and clearly impressing at Arsenal, she was given the opportunity to travel to Germany with the first team for a pre-season game. The game in Germany saw Beth acquire her first start for her new club with hopefully many more to come.
