Hands up for football?

People think of the Borders as a rugby stronghold, but those who enjoy playing football seem sadly less catered for, write Craig Hall and Jack Skeet.

Jedburgh is the only Borders town that has no youth football team. Jed Legion manager/coach Kenneth Cassie said that there used to be an under-14 team but few people went. He would like to start a youth team but isn’t sure whether he could do it and it would probably need a minimum of three adults to supervise.

A youth team would probably have to train twice a week 6.30pm – 8pm, with games on Saturdays at 11am.

Any young people interested should contact 07565 280180. Adults volunteering to supervise training can contact the same number.
