New St Cyrus football team?

A GROUP of people in St Cyrus is hoping to start up a local football team with a view to joining the Montrose and District Welfare (Sunday) League.

A member of the group, Craig Maddock, said: “There has not been a competitive football team in the village for over eight years, since the end of the Summer League team and the St Cyrus and Mearns youth team. We are encouraging everyone from the village to get involved and we see the team as being a great thing for the local community.

“We are looking for players. Ideally we are looking to get the core of the team from the village but everyone is invited to come along to training.”

The first training session is on Sunday, May 5, at 1pm at St Cyrus park.

Craig added: “We have been in contact with local businesses regarding sponsorship but would greatly appreciate any potential interest from others.”
