A street football session in Aberdeen received a special milk delivery to celebrate the support from Robert Wiseman Dairies in helping provide free football sessions to the children of Aberdeen.

Children at the session in Kincorth were joined by Aberdeen players Jack Grimmer and Conor Devaney to toast the dairy company whose support of the Scottish FA’s Street Football programme is helping to provide free football sessions to children in Aberdeen over the summer holidays. At the end of each session young players are given Wiseman’s Shock fresh flavoured milk at Street Football sessions.

Wiseman is the partner of the popular Scottish FA Street football programme which brings football into communities, giving more young people the chance to play football more often. Anyone aged 10-18 can drop in and play at the various Street Football sessions.

Aberdeen player Jack Grimmer said: “It’s great to see so many youngsters coming out on their summer holidays and getting involved in football. It’s important to stay active over the summer holidays and it gives them something to do and get out of the house and play football.”

“There were activities like this when I was younger but it took place on concrete so wasn’t good on the knees but it got me involved in football and it’s great that this scheme encourages kids to get involved in small sided games.”

“It's great to see kids out playing football and Street Football can play a part in developing young talent further. Conor and I were watching the games and there are some good young players out there that we might see playing in the future.”

Sandy Wilkie, Wiseman sales and marketing director, added: “At Wiseman we recognise the importance of being a part of the communities we serve and our support of the street football programme is a great way for us to be more involved, as well as encouraging physical activity in young people.”

“We hope that our association with the Street Football programme encourages more young people to choose to include milk in their diet, encourage a healthier lifestyle and reach their potential in the game.”

"Having Jack and Conor here today shows what youngsters can achieve with regular football, practise and a healthy lifestyle."
