Three clubs have recently been awarded the Quality Mark Standard Award.

Coltswood Colts and FC Kirkwood, both of Coatbridge and Clyde School of Football, the community arm of Clyde FC had all attained the levels of coaching and first aid, organisation and administration required by the programme.

Alan Taylor, Football Development Manager for Dunbartonshire and Lanarkshire said "Its very pleasing to have three clubs from one area achieve this award.  For the clubs it is the culmination of a lot of hard work by their volunteers to get the clubs ready for this and I hope it can spur on others in the area to make the same commitment."

The Quality Mark award is available to both Schools and Clubs and split into three levels, Standard, Development and Community.  There are currently 29 Standard Award holders, 6 Development Awards and 2 Community Awards.
