Thursday, 08 December 2016


Scotland legend Kenny Dalglish surprised youngsters at Broughty Youth FC when he joined their training session on Tuesday to deliver a brand new kit to the Under-14s team.

 

The club received the free kit courtesy of the McDonald’s Kit Scheme for Scottish FA Quality Mark clubs.

 

During his visit to the club, Dalglish, the McDonald’s Head of Scottish Football, shared his extensive knowledge of the game and took part in a training session with the club’s under 14s team.

 

He then presented the club with an official McDonald’s sponsored kit, and spent time signing autographs and posing for photos with the team and club members. 

 

McDonald’s Head of Scottish Football, Kenny Dalglish said: “It was a pleasure to train with Broughty Youth FC. I always have great admiration for the passion that I see volunteers put into training.” 

 

The former Scotland international player and Liverpool manager added: “I think it’s fantastic that McDonald’s has an initiative like the Kit Scheme, which brings new football kits to clubs around the UK.

 

"Being able to present the club with their new kit was a great moment for me, as I know that feeling of pride coming onto the pitch wearing your club’s colours.

 

"I hope Broughty Youth FC put in some great performances whilst wearing theirs.”

 

Local McDonald’s Franchisee Nick McPartland, who supports local grassroots football in the Dundee area, said: “Broughty Youth FC is a great club with fantastic support from club officials and parents.

 

"I am proud that McDonald’s are involved in something that the team and their parents will remember for a long time.

 

"I am a big supporter of grassroots football and having someone as great as Kenny Dalglish visit will live long in the players’ memories.”
