Young footballers will get the chance to show their skills at the St Mirren first team training ground this Easter.

The award-winning Street Stuff programme will host a special Spring Break Football Camp at the club’s training base at Ralston from 6 April.

Boys and girls aged 10-16 can sign up for the football camp and play for free.

Street Stuff is an award-winning programme diverting young people away from possible antisocial behaviour.

The programme is a partnership between Renfrewshire Council, St Mirren Football Club, Engage Renfrewshire, Police Scotland and Strathclyde Fire & Rescue.

Brian Caldwell, Chief Executive of St Mirren FC, said: “We are delighted to assist the Street Stuff programme with this new initiative, giving kids the chance to play and be coached at our training ground at Ralston, and I am sure it will be a big success.”

Councillor Eddie Devine, Convener of Renfrewshire Council’s Environment Policy Board, said: “Street Stuff is getting bigger every season and just because it’s the school holidays, we don’t have to stop the Street Stuff fun.

“We had over 400 players at our festive football sessions in the airdome at St Mirren and I’m sure we’ll get lots of boys and girls signing up for the chance to play at the training ground during the Easter holidays.”

Sign-up forms are available to download at www.renfrewshire.gov.uk/streetstuff or from Stevie Gallacher, Street Stuff Manager, on 07557 281581.
