Under 14 footballers urged to pull on their boots

TEENAGE footballers are being urged to head for the astro-turf in Stornoway tonight (Monday) if they are interested in playing the game.

Senior league champs Stornoway Athletic this week admitted they are struggling to draft together a squad for the upcoming under 14 season.

But the club is now to re double efforts to enter a team for the 2013 season.

The Aths are encouraging any young player, boys and girls, to go along to training on a Monday evening 5pm to 6pm at the Smith avenue Astroturf pitch where tere is no other requirement - other than turning up and having fun.

Magnus Johnson of Athletic said: “Aths would welcome anybody who wishes to come and try out football in any of its age groups. However, it is the under 14 catergory that is proving to be difficult to get numbers for this year.”

If anyone is interested or has any queries Athletic are encouraging players and/or parents to please contact Aths Coaches Keith Bray 07748103538 or Magnus Johnson 07818454052 .
