A petition has been created to get purpose built 3g football pitches in Blantyre.
The SFA say investment in youth football is crucial to the future success of the game in Scotland and money is tight, however with over 430 participants and 75 volunteer coaches involved in Blantyre Soccer Academy (BSA) alone let alone other sports clubs that could make use of the facility if properly constructed i.e. Rugby, running etc. the ‘savings’ in terms of Crime Reduction, Health Benefits, reduced bills for NHS etc etc etc, it’s more than a worthwhile investment.
BSA have children both boys and girls with age groups from 3 years to 19 years of age, an adult amateur team and an over 35’s team taking their total of members to 430 . They also are a Full Disability Club and provide a full player pathway. THEY ARE A REAL COMMUNITY CLUB, “Building a Better Blantyre, One Person at a Time”
Please take 60 seconds to sign the petition and help with securing this worthwhile community facility.
