MORE than 500 kids descended on Glenhead Park in Duntocher recently as Drumchapel Amateurs held their fifth annual football festival.

In addition to the hosts, teams from twenty clubs from as far afield as Cumnock in Ayrshire and Wishaw in North Lanarkshire, were all represented at the event.

Part of that number were several other local sides, including Clydebank FC, Drumchapel United FC and Duntocher based Antonine FC.

All of those who played received medals for their efforts.

The 2012 group kicked off Saturday’s action in the morning, before the 2011s and 2010s took to the park before and after lunchtime respectively.

The 2007s and 2008s, meanwhile, played their games on Sunday in much improved conditions, but despite the poor weather on the first day of the festival a great time was still had by all.

Laura Stewart, Drumchapel Amateurs' club secretary, said: “Obviously the rain was a bit of a dampener on Saturday, but all of the kids still really enjoyed it and we had great feedback from the visiting teams.

“Everyone played very well and there was some great football on display.

“The Little Lions Academy also came up on the day and did their own training session, and we had some in house catering, a BBQ was set up and there was an ice cream van.

“It was a very busy day for the volunteers and a lot of them came to help out. The coaches whose age groups weren’t part of the day came to help and it was really appreciated.”
