THERE was a successful inaugural football coaching session at Borrowfield Community Centre on Friday evening.

It was set up to help give local youngsters something to do at a time when many of them find time hanging heavy on their hands.

The sessions were conducted by Links Park Community Trust coaches Peter Davidson and Craig Ferguson, and in attendance were community police officers Alistair Hutchison and Tracy Brown.

Constable Brown was delighted with the turnout, and told the Review that close to 50 youngsters turned up during the evening.

Around half of them were at the football coaching, but up to 15 were in the community centre at any given time playing pool or taking part in other activities.

Constable Brown added: “It was very worthwhile. If we keep this up we can grow the numbers and that will be good for everybody.”

The football sessions will continue to run between 7.30 and 9pm at Borrowfield every Friday night until December 20.

There is no charge.

Various activities will be on offer in the community centre at the same time, including a pampering session for girls this Friday between 7 and 9pm incorporating make up, beauty and nails.

Partners also included Angus Council and the YM.
