Plea from Giffnock Soccer

GIFFNOCK Soccer Centre has launched an appeal for volunteers for the first-ever Securigroup international youth football festival.

The two-day event at Loch Inch and Cartha Playing Fields on June 2 and

3 is expected to attract around 5,000 visitors.

Help is required for a whole range of tasks from car parking to selling programmes and helping in food tents.

Any parents, grandparents or friends interested in helping out can contact Joe McKerns at joemckerns@talktalk.net.

Meanwhile, Giffnock’s Under-15 side is looking to strengthen for next season’s Paisley and District League First Division campaign.

Any boys with a 1998 birthday who are interested in a trial can contact Forbes Butterfield at forbes@qspine.co.uk or on 07903 585510.
