Generation games at Yarrow Park

A new partnership between Selkirk and Hibernian could benefit sports-minded people of all ages, according to community activities promoters from both clubs.

An Easter football camp involving four to 15-year-olds, run by the Easter Road outfit in Selkirk this week, was full to capacity, while the two clubs are also hoping to launch a walking football event for the over-50s in the weeks to come.

Selkirk chairman Ross Anderson told The Southern: “There are some exciting times ahead at the club, not only in terms of our Lowland League team, but events that involve the community in general also.”

Tom Elliot, head of community coaching with Hibs, added: “We have a good team of walking football players currently at Hibernian who regularly play other teams from across Scotland.

“It is a great form of exercise and one we hope will take off in Selkirk and the surrounding area.”
