The May Day Weekend saw the eleventh annual Galloway Football Fair take place in Newton Stewart.  Organised by Galloway Thistle Youth Football Club in conjunction with Newton Stewart Football Club the event saw two days of fun-filled football for kids of all ages with 65 teams from all over Dumfries and Galloway and Northern Ireland taking part.

There was mixed weather for the teams at Blairmount Park as the Saturday saw periods of brilliant sunshine whilst the Sunday was a much more overcast affair but that didn’t stop the hundreds of spectators who turned up to cheer the boys and girls on.

Saturday saw the Under 10s, 11s, and 12s tournaments taking place with teams from Dumfries, Girvan, Kirkudbright and Northern Ireland amongst others taking part in the tournament.  Each player received a trophy presented by John McNaught, Honorary Secretary of Newton Stewart Football Club, who has been involved in the Galloway Football Fair for 11 years.

Sunday saw the younger age groups compete in Fun Fours as recommended by the SFA Player Pathway Guidelines and the Under 7 age group got the day underway at 11 o'clock before the Under-8s and then the Under 9s finished the fair off in the afternoon.

Leslie Groves, Chairperson of Galloway Thistle FC and organiser of the event, said: "We always get lovely weather which has been nice today again.  You look around, loads of kids playing football, enjoying themselves and it's great to see a lot of girls here as well.  We're very proud of the fair."

John McNaught: "It's great to see the kids, see how they develop year on year.  It's the highlight of the year.  A busy weekend but well worth it."

Annan Athletic, Ballynahinch (Boys and girls), Carrick Colts, Dalbeattie Star, East End Boys Club, Galloway Thistle (Boys and girls), Girvan YFC, Greystone Rovers, Heston Rovers, Lochar Thistle, Lochryan Boys Club, Millennium FC, Real Sorn, Sorn United, St Cuthbert Wanderers, Terregles YFC.
