COWAL INTERNATIONAL YOUTH SOCCER FESTIVAL 2010
Written by Archie Fergusson on 17/07/2010
This weekend saw the rsurrection of the Cowal Soccer Festival which was one of the most successful and prestigous soccer tournaments in the 70’s with teams from across the United Kingdom, Europe and USA participating. This tournament involved many young players who went on to be succesful at a national and international level including Bobby Russell (Glasgow Rangers), Dave McCreery (Manchester Utd) and Tony Fitzpatrick (Ipswich and Scotland). At its height 5000 people watched the final and the organisers are hoping that this tournament will again grow into a spectacular feast of football. Jim Diamond will be at the stadium during the day with some of the original programmes, see if you can spot some local faces.
This year there are teams from across Scotland including Dunoon, Greenock, St Andrews and a team from Hajduk in Croatia. So come along and cheer on the teams.
