Colts loving training return as recruitment drive stepped up
CLARKSTON Colts' players and coaches have told of their delight after returning to training last month.
The Colts have been back in action in recent weeks with our young people enjoying the chance to catch up with friends and score some much needed time on the pitch.
It comes after the Scottish Government, Scottish FA (SFA) and Scottish Youth FA (SYFA) relaxed rules around youth sport, ensuring both our 2009s and 2007s could return to action.
Coach Jack Haugh said: "It's been so great to see all of our young people again and we hope they are enjoying their time back with their friends.
"We are making sure to give the players as much chance to get on the ball as possible and doing our best to keep activities fun - while also sticking to Covid guidelines handed down by the authorities.
"We know the last few months - not to mention the last year - have been hard on everyone connected to the club and we know how important it is for our young people to enjoy their time on the pitch. "
As of today (April 5), our older age group can also enjoy contact sport again and our coaches have planned a number of fun activities to make the most of the Easter holidays.
For our 2009s, a recruitment drive has been launched for outfielders in all positions to join the team ahead of their step up to 11-a-side football next season.
Jack added: "We don't just develop our young people as footballers. We help them grow off the pitch as well as on it.
"Anyone is welcome at The Colts."
Meanwhile, The Colts are also on the cusp of appointing a new head coach to replace the recently departed Scott Murphy and an official announcement will be made in due course.
