A local succces achieved by local tenacity

I was delighted to hear that Lochend Youth Football Club with whom I have been working for several years to get a proper home, have finally be awarded a long term lease at Seafield pitches and changing rooms. The club runs several teams from wee kids to adults including a Sunday morning football academy with over 100 local lads. Its run entirely by volunteers and provides a phenomenal service to the local community. I don't know yet the details but suffice to say this gives all that hard work by dedicated coaches and committee members the reward it deserves and all those involved are to be congratulated for this massive achievement.

There is of course still the small matter of the pitch and pavilion they were promised at Lochend Park which I will not give up on as it can only add to their resources and help them provide opportunities for even more local youngsters
