Renfrewshire-based young players from Johnstone Burgh and Houston Arms recently helped highlight the support being provided by the Scottish FA at grass roots level.
The Quality Mark programme - aimed at creating links between youth and adult teams in communities across Scotland - is being implemented across the nation by the sport's governing body.
The young players attended a St Mirren v St Johnstone SPL match and enjoyed some Fun Fours football on St Mirren park at half-time.
After, they enjoyed a lap of honour around the pitch.
Over 300 grassroots young players enjoyed free entry to the game as part of the club’s ongoing community club voucher scheme.
Any clubs wishing further information on the Quality Mark process or Club Development initiative, please contact Gary Hocknull on: Gary Hocknull, Community Coach / Scottish FA Development Officer, St Mirren FC, Greenhill Road, Paisley, PA3 1RU.
