Our youth setup has recently started two new teams at the 2009 and 2010 age groups with 27 kids involved so far who are really enjoying the opportunity to play football and make new friends. They are currently being coached by Scott Guy (from the SFA) through the McDonalds Programme, and by a coach from one of our other age groups. We already have a couple of people interested in becoming coaches for these teams and we hope to attract others as well to continue to give these kids the chance to play and enjoy themselves. The future looks bright for the new teams

The club held their annual youth football festival on Saturday and Sunday at Beechwood Park. Six age groups played over the two days with 360 kids playing at age groups 2008, 2007, 2006, 2005, 2003 and 2001. Some cracking games between excellent teams. Some of the individual skills were a joy to watch. The festival was enjoyed by all and gave the kids the opportunity to play expressive football. No doubt some stars of the future were on show. Thanks to all players, coaches and spectators who attended. It was a pleasure to have you all and we’ll hopefully see you again next year.
