The Scottish FA South West region recently supported an anti-knives initiative with one of its community clubs.

Woodwynd Wolves Community Football team, part of the Community charity ACES (Ayrshire Communities’ Education and Sport) , have been working with Strathclyde Police to deliver the ’NO KNIVES BETTER LIVES ‘ message across North Ayrshire.

In conjunction with KA leisure, Stagecoach, Street Sprint and Hope UK, they visited six areas to deliver a soccer challenge to engage with teenagers to offer positive life choices.

The road show was so popular that ACES, together with North Ayrshire campus Police officers, will deliver the roadshow to Primary schools further afield.


Colin Young, ACES community development officer, wishes to thank: North Ayrshire Council, Chief Inspector Newbiggins, KA leisure, Craig Hamilton of the Scottish FA, Stagecoach, Hope UK and Street Sprint for "all their help and support".
