MFSM - November 2017 Print E-mail

TACC were delighted to send 41 children to their first Scotland match in November 2017 as part of TACC's My First Scotland Match programme.


At the Scotland vs Netherlands match at Pittodrie on Thursday 9th, 16 children (4 each from the following Aberdeen support initiatives, overseen by Aberdeen FC Community Trust) cheered on Scotland:


Syrian Dons - using football to help integrate young Syrian refugees to develop social & language skills.

Torry Projects - pupils from both primary schools in one of Aberdeen's most deprived areas, transitioning with Torry Academy.

Northfield Academy - using daily football sessions as part of school curriculum to improve attendance & attainment.

Seaton Footea Project - P7 pupils who participate in AFCCT Footea and Breakfast club initiatives.


On Friday 10th 13 kids attended the Men’s Under 21 game vs Latvia at McDiarmid Park in Perth.  The kids attending were from SHIP.  S.H.I.P. was established by parents in 1986 and aims to provide support for young people in the Perth and Kinross community who have Additional Support Needs.  This support is delivered through youth clubs, play schemes and other activity led opportunities.  SHIP were one the charities we donated to last Christmas so it’s lovely to be able to continue our support to them.


On Tuesday 14th 12 children from Perth Autism Support attended the Men’s Under 21 game vs Ukraine at McDiarmid Park in Perth. This is a charity TACC also donated to last Christmas.


As always all children attending received a match ticket, a Saltire, £10 to spend and this lucky lot received the brand new Scotland strip !!!


In 2017 TACC has taken 158 disadvantaged children to their first Scotland match - this is only possible with your continued support, so thank you !!!
