They also had the chance to chat with the first team players, Jacques Heraghty, Lee Kilday and Liam Brown as they mingled throughout the night.
With the Club looking to grow its community football provision this was the first event in a series aimed at growing participation in football for boys, girls, and adults regardless of ability across Glasgow and the South Side.
Charlie Bennett, Executive Director of the new Queen’s Park FC Foundation currently being incorporated as the charitable arm of the Club commented ‘Our community teams are an important part of what we want to achieve here at Queen’s Park. Football is so important in terms of keeping young children active but it also teaches them life skills around respect, leadership, communication, being part of a team and sharing that can have a real impact on their lives. We are also particularly happy to have players from the first team squad here tonight. They are such positive role models for our young community team players to look up to and it also demonstrates the ‘one club’ approach we have here at Lesser Hampden.’
First Team coach Laurie Ellis echoed Charlie’s comments saying ‘We are really pleased to support this event tonight. It is fantastic the Club are encouraging so many young people to participate in grassroots football and enjoy the benefits that clearly come from it. The kids are so enthusiastic about representing the Club at community level and I would encourage any parent whose son or daughter is looking to join a team to consider Queen’s Park.’
