Day out for Kin­lochleven foot­ballers

The Oban Times - - Sport -

THE BOYS’ foot­ball team from Kin­lochleven en­joyed a foot­ball match at Ross County thanks to so­cial en­ter­prise group Kin­lochlovin’, which sup­ports young peo­ple in Kin­lochleven.

Con­nor MacKen­zie was one of the lucky foot­ballers who spent the day at Vic­to­ria Park on Jan­uary 17.

He said: ‘We got to Ross County’s sta­dium, which is a quite a high qual­ity sta­dium, in plenty of time to find our seats be­fore kick off at 12.15pm. It was a re­ally ex­cit­ing game with a man sent off, a penalty kick and five goals. Aberdeen won 3-2 in the end.

‘We then went on a tour of Ross County’s train­ing fa­cil­ity, the High­land Foot­ball Academy. It was great to see how the play­ers pre­pare for train­ing and what they do on their train­ing days.

‘Af­ter that we did some train­ing and played five-a-side games our­selves. The day was a great suc­cess and we all thor­oughly en­joyed it.’

The next trip to Ross County takes place on Fe­bru­ary 20 when the girls’ team will visit.
