I am Dean and I am the lead organiser and Chair of youth football for your local football club, which is known as Whitecraigs AFC. We train at the Craigholme sports complex every Tuesday and Thursday and play games at Nether Pollok pitches in Pollok park on Saturday and Sunday. We are very keen to widen our support of Community Football in the area and are in the process of introducing boys and girls training facilitated by fully qualified SFA approved coaches at this Quality Mark accredited club.

We are always looking for more Volunteers both men and women who are willing to give up some time to support the children get into sport . In return we offer state of the art facilities, support to attain coaching badges on the approved SFA pathway, first class kits as well as in house support and training under the expert tutorage of our Ex professional footballer and Head of Coaching Barry Scott.
