Lochgilphead Soccer Centre is delighted to have taken delivery of a quality rain jacket for each of the kids associated with the centre and Red Star YFC.

That’s 120 rain jackets in total.

As well as making sure the kids look smart and feel part of the club they will also help keep them dry and warm when the weather is a bit wet and windy.

The rain jackets have been sponsored by Mid Argyll Youth Development Services (MAYDS) and the Soccer Centre would like to say a huge thank you to MAYDS for this sponsorship and ongoing support.

Five teams from Lochgilphead travelled to the Oban Football Festival on a Saturday April 28. All teams played really well and were a credit to the Soccer Centre with their coaches giving them thumbs up.

The 2007s were able to field two teams and played against a range of quality outfits from Argyll and further afield. Goalkeeper Jamie Jeffrey was given the goalkeeper of the tournament award.

The 2008s had an excellent day, conceding just one goal in all their games. Another excellent festival display from a top team. The girls group also fielded two teams and both put in excellent performances.

This was huge improvement on their first festival appearance, just over six months ago, and shows how hard they have been working.
