South Lanarkshire Leisure held its annual McDonalds’s Primary School Festival on Wednesday 1st April 2009, attracting over 220 children at the Hamilton Palace Sports Grounds.

Fourteen schools from around the South Lanarkshire area descended down to the Palace Grounds to participate in the yearly football festival sponsored by McDonalds. All the pupils were treated to a fun-packed day with four coaching stations with the emphasis on fun related exercises.

Once this was over the children enjoyed playing small-sided games against other schools. McDonalds franchise manager, Jack Glen was on hand to distribute water and fresh fruit for all the participants.

The day ended with Jack and his son Craig distributing free football kits containing footballs, bibs and cones to all the schools who participated on the day.

South Lanarkshire Leisure would like to thank our Sponsors McDonalds, the schools who attended and to all the volunteers and staff who ensured the day ran smoothly and was enjoyable for all that were involved.
