Every week, hundreds of budding young football stars attend coaching organised by the St Johnstone Community Trust.
The initial emphasis was on the development of a network of football coaching courses for children and young people, along with the provision of the SFA Coach Education Programme.
A number of players who are now playing professional football benefited from the coaching the trust gives, with its work growning each year.
Football can be a force for good that produces numerous social benefits – improving self-esteem and inspiring children and young people in healthy lifestyles.
Through its programmes, the trust has proved to be a great success and youngsters who attend are being backed by computer service Cogent Focus, which has launched an online registration and booking system.
The trust’s Atholl Henderson said: “We are delighted Cogent are backing our work which includes our kids programme.”
