Ferry club bowled over by new strips

THE young footballers of Queensferry Thistle under 13s proudly display the new strips which were unveiled this week.

To help raise cash for the strips, both home and away, the youngsters took part in the Loony Dook on January 1.

They also received additional sponsorship from various local businesses and sports clubs including Clan McLeod Coaches, Forth Valley Engineering, Queensferry Bowling Club, The Queens Retreat, Queensferry Green Care, Forth Travel, Hepburn Engineering and Ventilation and Heating Sales.

Each of the companies who sponsored the team were put into a draw with the winner having their name emblazoned on the strip. The winner was Queensferry Bowling Club.

Recently our photographer met up with the team and their new sponsors at the bowling club.

Queensferry Bowling Club president Jim Dalgarno and secretary Brian McCartney are seen here team captain Fraser Henn.

Stephen Henn, coach at Queensferry Thistle under 13s said: “We would like to thank all the parents who sponsored their sons to take part in the Loony Dook and to local businesses who donated funds to enable us to buy our new strips.
