Seven teams from Longside School Football team were involved with competitions at their Village Gala recently.

Over 40 of the school’s pupils took part over the weekend and were glad to be showing off their new kit, sponsored by nearby business, BT Autos of Longside.

This year was the first that the school had primary 1 children competing in the football matches.

Football coach Lorraine Reid said: “It is so heartening to have a local business support our children’s activities rather than relying on the national and international oil companies. The children really enjoyed themselves at the gala and were proud to show off their new kit.”
