Giffnock Primary delivers ‘Big Numbers’ for Tickets for Schools

Queen’s Park’s cinch Championship match with Partick Thistle at Hampden on Friday night will be attended by 70 pupils from Giffnock Primary with Spiders defender Charlie Fox blown away by the enthusiasm from the East Renfrewshire School for the game.

Charlie visited Giffnock this week to discuss the club’s ‘Tickets for Schools’ Programme and after handing out match tickets, scarves and t-shirts he was put on the spot by an enthusiastic group who asked him loads of questions about life as a professional footballer.

A rather large bus provided by Queen’s Park’s and their partners McDades Coaches will take the children to and from the National Stadium with Charlie saying: “Giffnock Primary School gave me a really warm welcome and the pupils and staff are certainly very enthusiastic about coming to the Partick Thistle game. It is terrific that 70 of them want to come along and watch Queen’s Park and I am sure that they will make themselves heard.

“It is a great initiative by the club as I am sure that many of the pupils that come along will see Queen’s Park as their number one club in the future.”

It is going to be an even more special night for two of Giffnock’s pupils, who will be the match-mascots against the Jags with Queen’s Park’s Head of Commercial Kieran Koszary saying: “Kai and Zak were due to be mascots before we knew their school was coming along as part of the ‘Tickets for Schools’ Programme.”

“It is a happy co-incidence for them and for their friends who will see them on the pitch.”
