Campbeltown and District Juvenile Football Association (CDJFA) has supported three youngsters from the Campbeltown Pupils under-17s team begin their coaching pathway.

Euan Dott, Josh Arkell and Calum Ellis, who are all pupils at Campbeltown Grammar School, have successfully completed the Scottish Football Association (FA) Early Touches Level 1.1 course, each receiving a Scottish FA Level 1.1 Award, a recognised qualification in coaching.

The boys have also completed the Scottish FA Children’s Wellbeing in Scottish Football and Mental Health in Scottish Football courses.

On top of all that, they are also now fully qualified first aiders in sport.

‘We believe they will be a valuable addition to the club and will offer lots of support across the age groups,’ said a CDJFA spokesperson. ‘Well done boys, you are credit to the club.’
