ABOUT OUR INTERNATIONAL YOUTH FOOTBALL FESTIVAL AND TOURNAMENT

Participants from SCOTLAND, DENMARK, ENGLAND and WALES, First Class Organisation, Excellent Playing Surfaces and a Timely Schedule are the basis for Giffnock Soccer Centre’s Fifth International Youth Football Festival and Tournament, sponsored by Arnold Clark.

Due to the size of the Biggest Football Gathering in Scotland, we are now having to hold the event over two separate weekends.

The 4-a-side, 5-a-side, 7-a-side, Girls and Disability Football Festival will be held on Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th of June 2016.

The 11-a-side Football Tournament will be held on Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th of August 2016, which will prove to be the perfect end for a team completing their pre-season with a Competitive Football Tournament.

The event is for All the Family and is sure to provide a friendly atmosphere, hospitality and superb organisation. The festival will be staged on the outskirts of the award winning Pollok Country Park in the South Side of Glasgow and promises to have a packed programme of non-stop football on excellent pitches, together with plenty of additional activities that we hope will create a Special Family Atmosphere.

The address for the event is:

Cartha Playing Fields

92 Dumbreck Road

Glasgow

G41 4SN

Norwood Playing Fields

132 Dumbreck Road

Glasgow

G41 4RF

 

 

 

 

 

 

The club house and sports facilities will be split between the Cartha and Norwood Playing Fields, close to Pollok Country Park.

Each day, Giffnock SC will provide Catering in and around the Norwood playing fields with BBQs, Ice Cream, Sweets and Refreshment stalls.

There will be additional catering facilities available at the Cartha clubhouse.

This will be accompanied all day by family entertainment, including Bouncy Castles, Beat the Goalie, Various Stalls and if the boys and girls feel up to it Sponge the Coach.

Parking will only be available at Cartha Red Car Park on both weekends for a small cost of £3.00 per day, which will include an Official Programme. If returning for a second day, parking will cost £2.00 if you display your programme.

ABOUT YOUR FESTIVAL HOSTS

GIFFNOCK SOCCER CENTRE (Giffnock SC) was founded in 1995 by a group of dads keen to teach their children the rudiments of football in a safe and fun environment.

The club, voted SFA Best Community Footbal Club for 2013, is now one of the biggest of its type in the country with over 1000 boys and girls currently at the club.

We are a registered charity and are entirely run by around 220 unpaid volunteer coaches.

At primary age level we have around 500 kids, many of who play in one of our 4 and 7-a-side teams participating in the (ERSDA) set up and laterly at 7s Paisley Johnstone and District.

Giffnock SC normally enters 3 or 4 teams for each primary age group in the ERSDA leagues.

The remaining primary children receive coaching from our SFA certificated volunteers at our Soccer Academy, which runs throughout the year.

Giffnock SC continues through to S5/6 and beyond onto Amateur Football with our teams competing in various leagues including Glasgow and District (formerly the Scottish Amateur), Paisley Johnstone and District and East Kilbride Youth league. Typically, we will have anything from 1 to 3 teams at each secondary age group.

In recent years, we have provided a number of players to professional clubs including Celtic, Rangers, Aberdeen, Dundee United and Partick Thistle.
