Over 500 children turn out for Cairn Cup

Cairn CupThe fourth Cairn Cup was held in Inverness on Saturday with over 500 children competing in three different football tournaments.

The event moved to Millburn Academy this year to accommodate an expanded tournament of 48 teams. Children from P2 to P7 had the opportunity to participate, with the P2/P3 age group playing six-a-side and the other age groups playing eight-a-side.

The Cairn Cup was one of 15 community run projects supported by the Cairn Community Fund in 2016/17. In between matches, there was plenty to do with a bouncy castle, face painting, a BBQ, a cake stand and even some glorious weather.

Cairn’s responsive repairs coordinator, David Cargill, was on hand to congratulate the winners and said: “Congratulations to all the boys and girls who played in the sun today with big smiles on their faces. We’re delighted to be part of such an amazing event in Inverness which has become a fixture on the Highland sporting calendar.”
