Sup­port char­ity foot­ball match

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

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
