The Week Ahead

It's a busy week at the Club with two Development League West games, our final home game of the 2017/18 Championship season and an International match, as well as the return of the usual clubs, annual awards and a new car give away!

With the schools back from the Easter holidays, our Breakfast Club returns on Monday and will continue throughout the week.

Our school programme also starts again. We are at Shawhead Primary on Monday morning and Lockerbie in the afternoon. 

Walking Football also continues at the Arena on Monday morning for the over 55s.

On Tuesday, the Community team take our Why Try programme to Maxwelltown High School in the afternoon.  While in the evening, the youth teams will be in for their training sessions and we have our first game of the week in the Development league at home to Clyde, kick off 7.30 pm.  

On Wednesday, we head to Nethermill school for a couple of hours in the morning and then move over the Dumfries Academy with Why Try in the afternoon.  The Wednesday afternoon clubs also make a return for pre and primary school children.
On Thursday, the school programme continues at Heathhall Primary. And in the evening, International football heads to Palmerston, with the Scottish Schools Football Association Under 18 Centenary Shield match between Scotland and Wales.  Kick off 7pm.

On Friday, the school visits continue, we are at Hottsbridge between 10 am and 12 noon and then at Dumfries High School with Why Try.  On Friday afternoon, the Girls Club takes place at the Arena.

In the evening, the Under 20s have their final game in the Development League, away to Ayr United.  The game takes place at Townhead Park in Cumnock and kicks off at quarter to eight. 

On Saturday we have our final home game of the season against promotion chasing Dundee United.  The day will start with the Saturday pre-match club for kids at half past 12.  A chance for them to play football and learn new skills with their peers before watching the first team in action.  

With it being our last home game of the season, the players and supporters clubs will be presenting their annual player of the year awards and we will be giving away a brand new car in our deluxe draw.

And for their final charity of the week for this season, the SLO Committee have chosen, The Cystic Fibrosis Endowment Fund.

Based at Dumfries and Galloway Royal Infirmary the fund is to help support the sufferers of CF and their families in D&G. Money from the fund has been used to buy gym memberships, swimming and trampoline lessons and many other sporting memberships. It buys fridges for medication storage, holiday travel insurance, days out for the family. It can also be used to make their stay in hospital a little more comfortable. 

And to round off a busy week, the Under 15 side have a game against Elgin and the Under 17s face Inverness both at Kinross.
