SRP Good Neighbour Fund - £1200 to Blantyre Soccer Academy

11 December 2023

Scottish Roads Partnership ‘Good Neighbour Fund’ Donation in October 2023 - £1,200.00

In October 2023 Scottish Road Partnership via their ‘Good Neighbour’ fund presented Blantyre Soccer Academy’s Boys Under 17 football team with a cheque for £1200.00 for the provision of new football kit including a match day kit and training top for the 22 players in the team. The football academy has been operating in the local community for the past 11 years and they play in the CLYFA B league in central Scotland and are currently sitting in third place in their league. They train on a Monday and Wednesday evening and play their home games on a Saturday at Calderside Academy, Boswell Drive, Blantyre.

On Monday evening, 11 December 2023, SRP’s Operations Manager Graham Drummond visited the Under 17 football team and watched them take part in a training session, which was a perfect photo opportunity for a group photograph of the teams and their managers Derek Kelly, Colin Kelly and Andy McMillan. The boys are wearing their new match day kit with their new sponsor’s name ‘Scottish Roads Partnership’ across the chest. (SRP's Graham Drummond is front row centre of photo).
