Com­pe­ti­tion had a se­ri­ous mes­sage

Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - Sports -

School pupils from 13 North La­nark­shire high schools par­tic­i­pated in a seven-a-side foot­ball com­pe­ti­tion to raise aware­ness about sui­cide pre­ven­tion.

Air­drie Academy won the tour­na­ment, beat­ing Cum­ber­nauld’s Our Lady’s in the fi­nal.

Teens from St Am­brose and St Mar­garet’s also took part in last week’s event – which aimed to in­form play­ers, teach­ers and spec­ta­tors about the im­pact of sui­cide and also high­light the stigma sur­round­ing men­tal health in men.

Air­drieo­ni­ans backed the event which was also watched by Al­bion Rovers boss Brian Kerr.
