10 October 2019Football in the library!
OYDG took part in the National Fun Palace event held at the Orkney Library last Saturday. We had a Keepy Uppy, Shot at Goal and Dare Dribble Competitions. Ages from 2 to 65 years old had a go with! Many thanks to players Heddle Poke, Ali Mackenzie, Lewis Gray, Kris Aiken, Thorfinn Scott, Louis Handcock and Jordan Linklater for help on the day and sharing their footie skills, especially with the little ones. OYDG secretary David Runciman and OYDG coaches Erlend Poke, Derek Aiken and Graeme Scott came along to help and joined in on the fun. Probably the only time you would be allowed to kick a football round the library!
