A Scotstoun club is giving every primary school class in Glasgow a brand new football ahead of the Euros.

On the Ball Academy walked from Scotstoun to Hampden in a bid to raise money to help kids celebrate the competition.

Around a hundred people took on the 10-mile trek to Scotland's national stadium in a bid to raise £15,000, last Sunday (June 2).

Ryan Docherty, founder and CEO of On the Ball, says the project will benefit clubs in Scotstoun, Yoker and Drumchapel as well as Glasgow.

The money raised will fund 1,095 balls to go to 140 primary schools before Scotland faces Germany in Munich – which is 1,095 miles away from Glasgow.

The Saturday before the walk the academy also held a 5-a-side match in Drumchapel. 

Their next plan is to host a tournament in Toryglen Football Centre where they have secured three pitches.

Ryan Docherty, founder and CEO, said: “There will be a lot of passion and enthusiasm from young Scots for football this summer – we don’t want anything to stand in the way of that.

“There are a lot of circumstances that can cause young people to take the wrong path. Through football, we want to support the community and help to transform lives, helping children across Glasgow overcome the challenges they face.

“Giving kids a ball seems like a small gesture, but resources are stretched and these balls will be played with by thousands and thousands of kids, many of whom come from underprivileged backgrounds. This is opening the door to the positive life experiences football can bring, it’s about so much more than just about finding the next Andy Robertson – although that would be great too!”
