The Scottish FA’s South East region is using its Twitter account to provide extra football opportunities across the area.

Pencaitland Youth Football Club won a competition @sfa_southeast by correctly answering “Northern Ireland” to the question: Keith Wright earned one international cap for Scotland, who was this against?

The prize was for Hibernian legend Keith Wright himself, along with Hearts community coach Alan White, to deliver a free coaching session to 30 young players at the club and be photographed with the Scottish Cup.

Aidan Forbes, the South East’s office and events co-ordinator, said: “We decided to use the competition to try and engage with some of the clubs that we maybe don't work with as much as others. 

“The Twitter account is also a good tool to promote the staff and the work that the region is doing.”

With 683 followers since it was activated in April, the South East is the most popular regional Twitter account within the Scottish FA.

Aidan said his team viewed the social media device as a vital tool for interacting with people involved in the grassroots game.

“With the numbers of clubs, coaches and general football supporters we have in this part of the country, we want to engage with the wider community as much as possible and help promote the amateur game,” he added.
