The community teams train twice a week, and play in local leagues representing Queen’s Park FC at a community level, and this Wednesday the squads from the under-14s Girls along with the 2010 and 2011 Boys will be joined by Alex Bannon and Scott Williamson at the Glasgow Palace of Art.
Next week the players in the 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 age groups for boys and the under-8 and under-10 Girls Teams will receive visits as they get down to work and play at Stonelaw High School and Nethercraigs.
Chief Executive Officer of the Queen’s Park Foundation, who are the charity arm of the club, Charlie Bennett said: “We will be absolutely delighted to welcome the men’s first team players to our community team training sessions. Our youngsters will love demonstrating their skills in front of them especially as the first team players themselves are such positive role models for any aspiring young football player.”
“This is another example of the strong relationship between the Club, the Academy and the Foundation which has been growing over the last few months. Together with our proposal to develop Holyrood Sports Centre as a community sports hub makes Queen’s Park an exciting place to be.”
Mens First Team Head Coach Owen Coyle added: “We all understand the importance of the club’s involvement in their local community, and the positive impact we can all have as role models, and I was delighted to be asked to support visits to the Queen’s Park Football Club Community teams.”
