2018 Annual Dinner

Our annual fundraising dinner took place at Prestonfield House Hotel on September 6th. Marking the 10th year of our social enterprise it was a very special evening.

Guests were astounded and baffled by the skills of Colin Cloud, forensic mind readers and entertained by stories from Terry Butcher, Ally McCoist and Charlie Nicholas.  

We'd like to thank all our guests and those who contributed items for our main and silent auctions. With your support we will continue to be here for good in North Edinburgh.

2018 is a special year for Spartans Community Football Academy. On December 5th 2018 we celebrate 10 years at our home in Ainslie Park, North Edinburgh.
