The Scottish FA School of Football at Craigie High School in Dundee celebrated its first birthday this week.

Pupils, parents, members of staff and representatives from Dundee City Council were on hand to hear about the success of the programme.

The School of Football aims to enhance the physical and social development of its pupils as well as their life skills and education.

The pupils involved have an enhanced timetable including a period of football activity each day.

At the birthday celebrations the students were awarded with Certificates of Achievement and issued with their summer homework from Jimmy Bone, Scottish FA Player and Coach Development Officer, before demonstrating their footballing skills to the audience.

The event was attended by Dundee City Council Education Convener Cllr Liz Fordyce who said: "I would like to congratulate every young person who has taken part in the programme.

"I am sure we are seeing some future stars take their first steps in the game and I would like to wish them all well for the future."

Craigie High School is one of six Schools of Football across Scotland which are funded through the Scottish FA's partnership with Cashback for Communities.
