Blairgowrie Advertiser - - THE BACK PAGE - Clare Damodaran

Blair­gowrie and Rat­tray Com­mu­nity Foot­ball Club’s 2006 team is host­ing their very first foot­ball fes­ti­val this Satur­day, Septem­ber 30.

The team has taken part in lots of fes­ti­vals since they formed in 2012 and is now look­ing for­ward to wel­com­ing 11 teams from all over Scot­land to par­tic­i­pate in their very own tournament at the Piggy Lane pitches in Blair­gowrie.

An es­ti­mated 120 play­ers will be tak­ing part in the event, each of whom will re­ceive a medal for their ef­forts, spon­sored by Dun­dee­based Struc­tural Engi­neer­ing firm Millard Con­sult­ing.

The ac­tion gets un­der way at noon with each team play­ing five 15-minute games.

Or­gan­is­ers ex­pect that there will be a lot of tal­ented young foot­ballers tak­ing part and would en­cour­age as many peo­ple as pos­si­ble to come along and support both the Blair­gowrie team and the event.

The car park at Piggy Lane will be full so any­one trav­el­ling to the pitches by car should park at the com­mu­nity cam­pus or on Elm Drive.
