Lanarkshire Football Development Association held a massive 4 v 4 event at Toryglen Football Centre recently.

 

Mill United’s Ross Reddiex and his group of hard working coaches organised the event on behalf of the association and over 265 children enjoyed a fantastic day.

 

As well as giving children the chance to play organised football in a relaxed and fun environment, the event helped raise hundreds of pounds in aid of Yorkhill Children’s Foundation.

 

A mass warm up for all the players was delivered by John Brown of the Scottish FA and he was ably assisted by mascots from St Mirren, Motherwell and Partick Thistle who all supported the event.

 

LFDA’s Dave McKenna was delighted by the turn-out and commented:

 

“The introduction of the 4 v 4 game format is something that we strongly believe in and LFDA introduced this set up for our youngest age groups long before the nationally adopted Player Pathway was introduced.

 

"The talent on display and the smiles on the faces at this event were a joy to watch.”

All who attended thoroughly enjoyed the event and the young players will learn the game in it’s simplest form where technique development and fun are more important than results.

“This event is one of the most impressive and enjoyable I have ever had the pleasure to attend over my many years involved in football. The introduction of the 4 v 4 game format is something that we strongly believe in and LFDA introduced this set up for our youngest age groups long before the nationally adopted Player Pathway made it mandatory. The talent on display and the smiles on the faces were a joy to watch.”
