Cumbernauld Colts FC held their annual soccer festival this weekend to great success, with numerous local teams coming together to compete in a football filled two days Ravenswood Playing Fields, with age groups spread between 1997 - 2004 age groups.
 
The event promoted the Positive Coaching Scotland initiative, which is backed by the Scottish FA. Football has a unique opportunity to teach life less to children and PCS can do this by way of helping club leaders, parents teachers and coaches to encourage young people to stay in football, focusing on the development of skills and that winning in life is achieved through effort. 
 
The festival’s positive atmosphere was apparent throughout the different age groups, from watching the soccer fours in the morning on the astro pitches, through to the u15s final going to a penalty shootout on the final day. Stewart McKenzie, chairman of Cumbernauld Colts told YFS:
 
 “All of the age groups in the 4s, 7s and 11s have shown a great attitude over two days and everyone seems to have thoroughly enjoyed it. A preseason event like this both great for their physical workout as well as the community aspect, bringing clubs together in preparation for the season ahead.”
 
Congratulations to the winners - 
U15s - Cumbernauld Colts 2 v 2 Murieston (Murieston won on penalties)
U14s - Glenboig 7 v 0 Kilsyth Athletic
U13s - Cumbernauld Colts 0 v 1 Aston Villa
