Thanks to all the Western Thistle players who braved the rain today at the U9 and U11 Football Development Festival at Smith Avenue.

We had two teams at U9 and three teams at U11. All five teams played some excellent football and put in a fantastic effort in the difficult wet conditions.

Well done everyone!

Western Thistle U13s kicked off their 2016 season with a trip to Fivepenny to play Ness on 9 April followed by a Development Festival at Smith Avenue on 23 April.

The Ness game finished 13-2 to Western Thistle and the scorers were Kayleigh x4, Tam x3, Ross x2, Ryan, Lisa, Jacob & Charlie.

The U13 Development Festival on 23 April saw two Western Thistle teams taking part. Both teams performed strongly, winning 6 out of 9 games played, with one draw and two defeats.

We had a broad spread of scorers on the day with ten different players on the scoresheet and there were excellent team performances all round from everyone involved!

The Development Club was set up to inspire children to get involved in football in a fun and friendly environment.

This is done through the club’s Football Training Scheme where children can learn and develop their football skills through organised and enjoyable coaching sessions.

The Football Training Scheme is open to all children from Primary 1 up to Secondary 6 and includes children from the Westside, Shawbost & Breasclete school catchment areas as well as some children from the Stornoway area.
