Milngavie Football Club’s disability class coaches attended an SFA prize-giving dinner in the Macdonald Inchyra Hotel, in Falkirk, recently and were presented with a Disability Club Award.

Coach Caroline Diaz, said: “We are over the moon to have achieved this Disability Club Award in such a short time. I also made a presentation on the night to raise awareness of the lack of facilities not only for disabled children, but for football and sports in general, which is stopping us playing and training all year round due to the weather.”

The club, with a team of 12 coaches, is looking for new members. Anyone wishing to join can contact Caroline by e-mailing milngaviefootballclub@hotmail.com The team also has a new team strip, sponsored by Stephen Falconer Painter and Decorator.
