Lochside Boys Club has been recognised for its valuable contribution to grassroots football.

Lochside's chairman Stewart Seivwright and coach co-ordinator, Allan Allardice were presented with the Scottish FA Quality Mark Standard Award by Kevin Lee, Scottish FA East Region club development manager.

The award, part of the Quality Mark Accreditation Scheme run by the Scottish FA in partnership with McDonald’s, and supported by the Big Lottery Fund, recognises proactive clubs and schools working to increase youth and community participation.

Clubs receive the award after meeting standards in areas such as coach and player development, management, administration, welfare and planning.
