"The Club allows the children to participate in regular training and games, while also encouraging fitness and football related skills.

"The new stripes have made such a difference, the boys love wearing them and they really feel part of the team.”

The team train twice a week at Park Mains High School and play at the weekend at various venues across Renfrewshire and Inverclyde.
