The Scottish FA's South East regional disability team took part in its first ever competitive tournament at Hollyrood Sports Centre in Glasgow.

The event was the very first of its kind, with three different regions taking part. Along with the South East, the Scottish FA West and North regions also brought in teams to take part in games organised by Scottish Disability Sport and Scottish FA.

The weather wasn’t the kindest to the players, with heavy rain all day, but this didn't dampened the sprits of the squad. The tournament was a reward after all the hard work they have put in at training over the past year at Peffermill.

Jack Martin, Scottish FA Disability Co-ordinator said: “For many of these players this is the first time they have competed in such an event and this will give them great experience.

"These players are happy to be here and grateful for the opportunity to pull on a Scotland jersey, so overall a great day out for the players and coaches who work hard every month!”

After the tournament the players stopped by Hampden Park and posed for photos outside the National Stadium. 

All the players now know what work they have to do to improve for the next games which will take place on home soil in the South East in March.

The regional disability centre runs once a month at Peffermill Playing fields, all sessions are Free. The following sessions will take place on:

13th December, 7th February, 7th March, 4th April, 2nd May and 13th June
