CHILDREN from local primary schools across West Dunbartonshire enjoyed a morning of football at Dumbarton Football Stadium in less than summery conditions!
Despite the dreich weather, the Tesco Bank Football Challenge was enjoyed by over 600 kids on the famous DFC surface with Sons head of youth and comunity Jim Chapman in attendance.
The Tesco Bank Football Challenge is a four-year community programme run in partnership with the Scottish FA. The project introduces football to Primary 2 and Primary 3 children (six to eight years old) across Scotland to help get them engaged in a healthy and active lifestyle.
Now in its second year 900 boys and girls in the area have taken part, this year across ten schools. Overall, more than 36,000 children across Scotland will have been involved in the Tesco Bank Football Challenge by June 2012.
On behalf of Dumbarton FC, Jim Chapman commented : “It was brilliant to see the children have so much fun at our stadium. I think it is superb programme and we are pleased to support it.”
