Dundee East Community Sports Club (DECSC) recently held a 9s and 10s six a side indoor festival in Dundee.
Douglas Lads Club, Broughty United YFC and Ferry Athletic who are all under the umbrella of DECSC provide full player pathways from 8s through to adult.
Twenty-eight teams came from throughout the east region to participate in the six-a-side event. The following clubs were represented: Broughty United YFC, Ferry Athletic, Dundee United SC, Dundee West, Celtic Boys, Riverside, Dundee Rangers, Jeanfield Swifts, Montrose BC, Forfar BC, Dryburgh Athletic, Dundee Thistle & Arbroath Lads Club. Twelve teams met at the 9s age group, with another sixteen following them at the 10s age group.
A packed presentation room were treated to former Dundee FC, Dundee United FC and Scotland star Lee Wilkie who presented each player with a medal for taking part and a goodie bag from sponsors McDonalds.
The event is planned to be an annual occurrence and there will be no shortage of takers when 2012 comes around. With the 6-12 year olds now beginning their season in March, it was seen as an ideal curtain-raiser for many teams preparing for the big kick off.
DECSC would like to thank all the teams for making the day a very successful one and wish all the players good luck in their future games.
