The Scottish FA South West Region Soccer One Finals took place on Wednesday 25th May at the home of Ayr United, Somerset Park
The finals were attended by nine boys and nine girl’s teams and were played in a competitive and sporting manner. The Soccer One programme is the Scottish FA’s largest after-school football programme which offers free weekly football training and games to every S1 pupil in the country.
All training sessions are supervised by qualified Scottish FA coaches and provide pupils with an opportunity to play other schools from around the region in football festivals and matches that take place throughout the school year.
Run in partnership with the Scottish FA, the Scottish Government's CashBack for Communities scheme, Local Authorities and title sponsor Bank of Scotland, the programme aims to create new football teams in schools for boys and girls, regardless of ability.
Well done to all the pupils that represented their school and good luck to Greenwood Academy Girls, St Joseph Girls and the Boys from stonelaw and Girvan who progress to the National Finals at Toryglen on 14th June 2011 and will represent the South West Region.
A big thanks to all the schools who took part in the festival and to Ayr United who allowed us to use Somerset Park.
