The Angus McConnell Memorial Football Tournament

The 2nd Angus McConnell Memorial Community 7 a side football tournament took place on Sunday afternoon 22nd May 2022 from 2-5pm in Kirktonholme Park.

It was a great success and thankfully it remained dry for the football which was a miracle in itself as heavy rain preceded and proceeded the event. It was very well supported by other Churches, parents, families and members of our own congregation. We had 6 teams participate (Cambuslang, Claremont, St Brides, Trinity (Strathaven), St Marys Motherwell and ourselves) with around 75 primary school aged boys and girls having fun, playing together in a fair but competitive spirit and doing something to improve both their fitness and mental health – playing outside in the fresh air!!

We had 12 players in our team and they all played an equal amount of time on the pitch as we had rolling substitutes. We came in 4th position with 9 points with St Brides/St Kenneth’s winning the competition for the second year in a row with 15 points.

At the end of the day, I hope we did Angus and his family proud and I am already planning and looking forward to next year’s tournament.

We meet at 11am in the Upper Hall at the Church and all children will be made most welcome.
