Between 4th July and 8th July 2015, the Academy will host a world record attempt, namely the longest 11 a-side football match in honour of Craig Gowans. The fund raising event is being organised by a group of Craig’s friends, who have set themselves a target of playing a 100 hour football match, to raise £37k (Craig’s squad number at Falkirk was 37) for various charities, including ‘The Craig Gowans Memorial Fund’ (CGMF).
CGMF was established shortly after Craig’s tragic death on 8th July 2005. To date, it has raised c£70k for a number of local charities, including the Sick Kids Friends Foundation and CHAS.
The Academy has entered 2 teams into the Youth Work Games, held at Loch Tay 8th & 9th July. This residential is based on the Olympics but also features more bizarre ‘sports’ such as Swamp Football and Tug ‘O ‘War! Hopefully our Youth Workers Amy & Jamie, who are leading the teams, don’t let the side down!
