A disability football team from Duntocher won all eight of their matches at the Annan Athletic football festival last month.

With 16 teams and more than 130 players from all over Scotland taking part, the Duntocher Black Stars put on a great display to win all of their matches on a fantastic day at the Galabank.

A festival spokesperson said: “Well done to all the players. There was some fantastic football on display and everyone made new friends whilst playing the game they love.

“Many thanks to Annan Athletic Football Club for all their help and assistance and to all the helpers and volunteers without whom we wouldn’t be able to run such an event of this scale.”

Established in 2018, the Black Stars finished runners-up in the 2018/19 SFA Para-Football PAN disability league and made it to the Scottish Cup semi-final.

The PAN Disability league is a series of bi-monthly league competitions for young players with a range of disabilities. The programme is run by Scottish FA as part of their Scotland United initiative and is in a 7-a-side and festival format and involves nearly 40 clubs across Scotland. 

The Black Stars themselves now boast 20 players and are ever-expanding with two complete teams set to compete in the 2019/20 season, four great coaches and their own personal fitness instructor who all give the girls and boys the opportunity to thrive in the sport.
