THE Tartan Army teamed up with Scotland’s leading children’s charity to send a young man who attends Aberlour’s Crannog East service in Annan to his first football match.mfsm-09-2011-report


Andrew Irving went to see Scotland play the Czech Republic at Hampden Park and did his very own match report on the game (see other attachment).


Crannog East supports young people aged 12– 17 who are experiencing social, emotional and/or behavioural difficulties which impact on their education.


The Tartan Army provided Andrew with a football top, a ticket and some pocket money to spend.


Susan Gallagher of Crannog East said: 'Andrew really enjoyed the chance to see his home nation play and support them, both of which would not have been possible without the kind donation of the tickets from the Tartan Army for which both and Andrew and Aberlour are very grateful'.


The Tartan Army Children’s Charity is run by football fans who fundraise all year round to support disadvantaged children, both at home and in the countries where Scotland go to play.


One of their initiatives is My First Scotland Match, which takes children from across Scotland to Hampden, to see their national team play.


TACC spokesman Carey McEvoy said: “A child’s first visit to Hampden for a Scotland match can be such an exciting and emotional experience, but we realise that many children simply won’t get this chance. We hope to give them a great day out and some memories to cherish.”
