Weather doesn’t stop play…

…well, training anyway!

It’s been another snowy week that has played havoc with the football scheduling in the SJFA and even affected many training sessions.  But in the last few days, thanks to many determined people, training for Camelon Juniors FC and our Youth Development teams has continued.

On Thursday, despite snow, ice and sub zero temperatures, the team at Galaxy Sports Little Kerse managed to clear snow away so that training could go ahead for our first team.

Then today (Saturday), despite the postponement of matches for all our teams, we managed to squeeze in some extra training sessions to build on the positive growth momentum throughout.

So the first team made an extra trip to the once again cleared Little Kerse, while the 16s, 17s and 19s tried out the Olympic Hall at Camelon Community Centre.

Little Kerse provided a crisp but welcome morning training session for the Mighty Mariners.  We are grateful to Stevie Barr and his team for their work this week in preparing the pitches.

The Olympic Hall provided an indoor option for our development teams which enabled round robin 5 a side and skills training for our young players.  It was also beneficial to use a local facility to further support the community.

Weather permitting, the first team will be back in action this Saturday (27th) in a rearranged and reversed fixture that will see us welcome Broxburn Athletic to Carmuirs Park.  The 19s welcome Falkirk in a League Cup game, the 17s travel to Cowie in the league, while the 16s are awaiting to hear their fixture.

We’re grateful to all our supporters for sticking with us and encouraging all the lads as they represent Camelon.  #wearecamelonfc
