Alex Bannon said: “It was great to meet with the young players with the Queen’s Park Foundation. I was able to watch them train and they worked hard for their coaches. I am sure that there is a number of players there who will do well in their games for their teams.”
Ross Maloney Community Officer at Queen’s Park Foundation said: “It was a terrific experience for our young players at our Glasgow Palace of Art base to meet with Alex and Scott. They were excited to show them their skills and to have the chance to ask what it is like to be a footballer full-time.”
“Events like this can only increase the bond between the Foundation and the Mens First Team.”
Scott Williamson added: “The players were enjoying training and playing in small-sided games and that was great to see. It was great to support them as I know a good number of them come to our games to support us.”
As well as proudly wearing Black and White Hoops in local league games the community teams train twice a week and over the next week the under-8 and under-10 Girls Teams as well as players in the 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 age groups for boys will meet up with Cameron Bruce, Aaron Healy and First Team Coach Owen Coyle Junior.
Chief Executive Officer of the Queen’s Park Foundation, Charlie Bennett said: “The visit from Alex and Scott was really popular with our players and parents and it’s great that Cameron, Aaron, and Owen (Jnr) will be visiting our other squads that train at Nethercraig. This is the first of a series of events that will include players from both the men’s and women’s first team squads and it was good to see women’s top scorer Abby Callaghan, and captain Ellie Kane joining in the fun.”
