St Mirren Youth Football Club Under 9s recently took part in a football tournament which took place in Craig Tara, Ayr during the weekend of Friday 4th May to Monday 7th May. The tournament hosted many teams from Northern Ireland, England, Europe and of course Scotland. 
 
The tournament itself was a non competitive tournament for the Under 9's however, they were victorious and came back as champions, this championship trophy being The Fair Play Award.
 
During each game the match referee scored the team and the parents, coaches spectators and sideline out of 100. The sideline (coaches, parents etc) were marked on their attitude towards referee. The players were marked on their attitude towards the game, towards the referee and the way they approached the opposition. In total after each game there was 200 points at stake.
 
Coach Sam Wright said: "This award was an extremely tough award to win as the other teams were all good sporting teams. I personally think myself that this award is the greatest award that my team could have hoped for at the tournament, I feel this because it carry's huge significance, we were recognised by neutral referees on how we are in all the above point. For the kids to gain this award it made me so proud of them."
