BSYFC Celebrate 10 years!
Breadalbane and Strathtay Youth Football Club (BSYFC) celebrated their 10th birthday in style with a community fun day in Aberfeldy on the 18th August. BSYFC covers a wide area of Highland Perthshire attracting boys and girls from the likes of Blair Atholl, Pitlochry, Kenmore, Aberfeldy and Dunkeld & Birnam as well as the surrounding hills and glens.
The 10 years have passed quickly - in that time, thanks to the support and dedication of volunteer coaches, officials, sponsors and parents, the club has grown to over 130 players. The club is now represented from P1 through to S3 age groups and is proud to promote inclusion, fair play and positive coaching. The club achieved SFA ‘Quality Mark’ status in 2007, was voted Scotland’s ‘Community Club of the Year’ in 2008 and then in 2015 the BSYFC 2001s lifted the club’s first silverware. There has been significant investment in coaching education across the club, which has helped players maximise both their potential and enjoyment of the game. This focus on coaching has continued to this day with the club enjoying dedicated support from St Johnstone coach Danny Griffin under the SFA McDonalds programme.
The 10-year celebrations included a mini football festival which welcomed teams from the surrounding area. The event was open to all comers, not only to watch the football, but there was also plenty of other activities going on including ‘Beat The
Goalie’ and ‘Target’ competitions, face painting, a bouncy castle, a BBQ and a variety of stalls to browse through. The day was also an opportunity to highlight and celebrate the clubs support for a project to install a fresh water bore hole in the Malawian village of Engucwini saving villagers a 14km round trip!
