At Caledonian Braves we feel it is vital not only to perform on the park, but off the park as well. As a club we strive to engage with local communities whenever the opportunity arises and today was no exception. First team manager Ricky Waddell attended the Summerlea Museum’s national fun day event, alongside first team players Zac Butterworth and Cole Starrs.
Delighted to be invited along, Ricky said: “Summerlea Museum invited us to their fun day to represent the club. It was a great opportunity to get out and help in the community, whilst letting people know who we are and what we're all about.
“We had a fantastic response from the local people and they took to Zac and Cole really well.”
“At Caledonian Braves, as well as building an online community we want to let local people know we are a new club who are ran a bit differently. Thank you to Summerlea Museum for hosting us in what was a really interesting place to visit.”
With no midweek fixture both Zac and Cole were passing their talents onto the next generation. Being from Coatbridge it was especially enjoyable for Cole Starrs, he explained: “We attended a fun day at Summerlea Museum and heritage park. We put on a bit of fun for the kids attending whilst representing the club in the local area.”
“It was essentially a fun day for the kids to go and try some things. At our stall we had them taking penalty kicks with myself and Zac, both playing goalkeeper for the day. It was good for me being from Coatbridge, I remember going to the centre as a kid so I felt I could relate a good bit.”
We as a club understand how important local communities are and events like these are fantastic to be a part of, we will continue to help out and engage in future events whenever we can.
