WHAT a result – East Dunbartonshire FC’s annual football festival at Allan Glen’s playing fields in Bishopbriggs was a great success again this year.

Around 30 teams aged from four to amateur level – and about 20 from the host club – took part in a summer soccer bonanza which was attended by Provost Eric Gotts.

East Dunbartonshire FC 1997s, East Dunbartonshire Thistle FC 1998s and East Dunbartonshire FC Locomotiv 1999s each won their respective tournaments.

East Dunbartonshire FC’s Stephen Gray said: “The festival went very well. The weather wasn’t particularly nice in the morning, but cleared up by the afternoon.

“This is our sixth festival and we’d like to thank all those who came along. As well as the 30 teams competing, we had representatives from the club’s academy and ‘fun fours’ putting on a display – some of whom will join our club structure next season.”
