Paisley Daily Express - - It’s Time To Play Your Part, Young People Urged -

Gavin New­lands MP threw him­self into the game of Amer­i­can foot­ball when he vis­ited a lo­cal team.

The MP for Pais­ley and Ren­frew­shire North vis­ited Ren­frew­shire Rap­tors on Sun­day.

He threw some long ball and chat­ted to the team about how the club has been grow­ing as more peo­ple are keen to get ac­tive do­ing some­thing dif­fer­ent.

Mr New­lands is the SNP West­min­ster spokesper­son on sport and said: “I hap­pen to be quite the fan of Amer­i­can foot­ball which was why it was great to ac­tu­ally meet con­stituents who also en­joy the sport, and get to play a bit of it my­self.

“I tend to take an in­ter­est in most sports, I even cap­tained Pais­ley Rugby Club for a while be­fore I be­came an MP.

“Ren­frew­shire Rap­tors are a great ex­am­ple of an ac­tive sport­ing com­mu­nity in our con­stituency. If you are in­ter­ested in the sport I strongly en­cour­age you to go along and get in­volved, who knows, you might sur­prise your­self.”
