Grassroots clubs from across Glasgow were honoured for their work at a Quality Mark Awards ceremony in Glasgow City Chambers last week.

The Quality Mark Awards  - part of the Quality Mark Accreditation Scheme run by the Scottish FA in partnership with McDonald’s and sportscotland - recognises pro-active clubs and schools working to increase youth and community participation.

Clubs and schools receive the award after meeting standards in areas such as coach and player development, management, administration, welfare and planning.

Corftfoot United and Clyde School of Football received the Development award while Greater Easterhouse were awarded the Standard award.

Scottish FA West regional manager Paul McNeill said: “It was great to have this opportunity to thank the volunteers of these clubs who give up so much time to provide young people with opportunities to play football.”

Lord Provost Sadie Docherty and Councillor Archie Graham were in attendance and Paul added: “'It great to have two high profile councillors giving up their own valuable time to attend this event, it shows how well respected the Quality Mark scheme is in the city.”
