Tarbert Amateur Football Club returns to action tomorrow (Saturday) when the club welcomes an Islay select to Cil Andreis.

The game, with a 1.30pm kick-off, will be the boys’ first in almost a year, having taken time out of the Scottish Amateur Football League (SAFL) this season.

The Dookers started training again two months ago under the careful eye of Jonathan Scot,t who has been supported by volunteers and former players Bill MacFarlane and Bruce MacNab.

A club spokesman said: ‘The boys have really responded well to training and have done everything asked of them during the last two months.

‘There is an exciting crop of youngsters coming through who are eager to represent their village and get back into the SAFL.

‘Youngsters like Alexander McLean, Kyle Hamlin and James Walker have embraced the training methods and they have been well supported by experienced teammates like Nikki MacDougall and Malcolm MacIver.

‘As always, the boys will welcome your support and hopefully this is the first step back to competitive football again for a village that has a proud heritage in amateur football.’
