Former Rangers Star Opens Falkirk Five a Side Football Festival

From our latest press release....

After watching the success of Team GB in the London 2012 Olympics and the start of the Paralympics – probably from the comfort of your own sofa – a former Rangers star is encouraging you to Get Active for Autism.

Kevin Drinkell, former Rangers and Falkirk striker who also managed and played for Stirling Albion is launching a new charity football event to raise funds for Scottish Autism, Scotland’s autism charity.

The Scottish Autism Football Festival is on the 29th September 2012, from 1.30 pm – 5pm at Planet Soccer (opposite Inchyra Grange Hotel). This five a side tournament which is open to adult teams (over 16), will be a real family fun day out with activities and stalls. The stadium café and bar will also be open.

Kevin says: "The Olympics was a tremendous platform for sport in Britain; everyone should take advantage of this enthusiasm by getting involved in an activity you enjoy and getting active. This tournament is the perfect opportunity to do that and support a worthwhile cause – I think it’s fantastic to see the sport I love being used to increase the profile of Scottish Autism and raise some much needed funds."
