Support charity football match
A Cambuslang woman who has organised a charity football match is calling on the public to give the teams some much needed support.
Catherine Foyer helped set up the game at the K-Park in East Kilbride, which will take place on Sunday, March 6.
She organised it after her friend’s son Aidan, 11, was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease.
Catherine and female boxer Leeann Mackay went to collect the t-shirts that the 30 kid mascots will wear at the game.
The money raised at the match will go towards a study by Yorkhill Hospital in a game played between football legends and a team called Aidan’s Warriors.
The charity launched a name change this week and are now known as the Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity.
Tickets cost £10 for adult tickets, and £5 for kids.
Anyone wanting to purchase tickets should pop into Marion Rooney hairdressers or call Katie on 07403683744.
The match gets underway at 2pm on March 6.
Scotrail are set to roll out smartcard technology at Rutherglen and Cambuslang train stations.
The Rutherglen-Coatbride line is earmarked as one of 24 to get the upgrade.
Scotrail say it will shorten queues and give season ticket holders access to best value fares.
Cathy Craig, ScotRail Alliance commercial director said:“With Smart ticketing, the days of standing in queues are coming to an end.
“By the end of the summer, season ticket holders the length and breadth of Scotland will be able to buy their season tickets at home or at one of our at-station ticket machines, load them up onto their Smartcard and then just tap and go. Once people move to Smart they will have access to best-value fares and will enjoy smoother journeys with less need to queue.”
Meanwhile, commuters on the Rutherglen and Cambuslang line were left furious yesterday (Tuesday) after major delays.
A signalling fault at Motherwell meant disruption lasted well into the afternoon. Charity match Leeann Mackay and Catherine Foyer met with some of the mascots on Tuesday
