On Saturday 8th October 2016, Scotland played LIthuania at Hampden Park Glasgow as part of the World Cup 2018 Qualifying Campaign.  The result was disappoinitng, but for some youngsters it was still a great evening.  TACC invited some disadvataged young people along to the game as part of the "My First Scotland Match" (MFSM) programme.  One boy was from East Lothian and attended with his father and the other 6 were from Braehead Primary School in Ayr.  These children took part in a Fit 15 challenge where they were asked to take part in an activity that involved them being active for 15 mins daily. This was an initiative run by the schools Health and Wellbeing coordinator who's objective was to try and get more children from this socially deprived area more active with their families.  The coordinator approached TACC to ask if a MFSM place could be used as an incentive for the children to take part.  TACC were happy to oblige and the lucky six won their place to attend the match after successfully completing the challenge!

 

They all received their match tickets, Scotland shirt, Saltire flags and £10 to spend and were extremely excited about their big day out!!  A bonus was TACC Chairman Jim Hart giving them some of his renowned home-made tablet.

Does TACC make a difference to Scotland's kids?   Here's some of what Route 81 penned to their local newspaper in Helensburgh:

 

A, 16 - I was really happy at the chance of getting to go to a Scotland match because I have never been before. I was excited to get this experience and was emotional

when I got my first Scotland top. It was really good at the match and an amazing experience and the best bit was the late goal! It meant a lot to me to be able to be there!

Thank you! Was a wonderful experience!

 

M 15 - I am very excited about attending my first Scotland game because I have never experienced this before. God bless TACC! The atmosphere was amazing and it

was a good last minute goal.

 

N, 16  - It was emotional to be part of this trip, thanks for this unbelievable opportunity. The match was amazing, with a great atmosphere and was really good day out.

Chris Martin's last minute goal was the highlight. Thank you TACC for such a great day out.
