Skene Group Sponsors Steins Thistle Football Club

Thursday, November 12th, 2009

Steins Thistle Football Club was formed in 1972 and is a member of the Stirling and District Amateur Football Association.  The club are the rightful owners of the land at Allandale Village where they have changing facilities and play their home games, this being the only grass pitch within all the nearby local communities.

The club currently run 6 teams ranging in age from under 11 to under 21 and also have a full amateur team which has no age restriction.

The main aim of the club is to offer a free facility where adults and children, including many girls, of all ages can access and receive first class football training and guidance from Scottish Football Association trained and qualified coaches. This provides the youngsters from the Banknock, Haggs, Longcroft and Bonnybridge communities with an alternative to the misguided drink and drugs culture, which is increasingly prevalent today. The club believe that being directly involved within these local communities can only help direct the youth of tomorrow away from today’s problems.

It is with this community spirit in mind that the Skene Group was delighted to assist with the sponsorship of Steins Thistle Football Club.
