YFS confirms exciting partnership with FilmMyMatch

Written by
Youth Football Scotland is excited to announce a partnership with professional filming and analysis company FilmMyMatch that will enable us to further enhance the quality of coverage of youth football across Scotland.
Established in 2012, FilmMyMatch uses the latest technology (including extendable tripod technology and High Definition cameras) to capture the excitement and passion of live sporting events and showcase the talent that exists from grassroots to elite level.
From October, FilmMyMatch will support YFS in establishing trained camera operatives throughout Scotland, providing the opportunity for teams to access ‘Sky Sports’ style elevated footage at any venue (see example below, from the tie between Drumsagard and Clyde U13s). 
Footage will be made available to view online and via mobile/tablet devices within 24 hours of each game, enabling players, coaches, family and friends to easily watch and share games.
Furthermore, FilmMyMatch will provide an additional range of editing and analysis services, giving teams a chance to retain a high quality memento of a big game, or use it as unique coaching tool to improve performance.
FilmMyMatch Director Dave Roe said: “We are delighted to be working with YFS. The organisation provides a unique and valuable service to grassroots football in Scotland and we are proud to be supporting them in enhancing this service even further.”
YFS director Robbie Forsyth added: "FilmMyMatch will bring an exciting new dimension to our match filming services. It is exciting to offer young players and volunteers not just the opportunity to relive magic moments but to analyse their performance and improve their game."
At present YFS is seeking clubs in the Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow area that would be interested in pioneering the service in Scotland (at a discounted trial price).

YFS announce season kick off media evenings

Written by
The new season is now fast approaching and YFS have got a really exciting event we'd like to invite your team to - which is completely FREE. 
Having taken on board feedback from clubs, we are running a 'Season kick-off media evening'. The formula is pretty simple. You turn up with any number of coaches & players (ideal is a coach and a few players, but anyone is welcome). We will provide you with the following:
- An interview with players and/or coaches about the season ahead, which will be published on YFS TV and also given to you to publish on your team's own YouTube/Facebook (example from last year: click here). It's a great opportunity to showcase the exciting times ahead at your team/club, especially if you're still looking to recruit players.
- A professional photo of the team in their kit for the new season (see Barcelona example from above picture). Perfect for your social media cover photo or website banner and a fantastic keepsake for the club and any kit sponsors. We will provide you with a free digital copy of this photograph.
You'll also have the chance to browse various stalls with grassroots football related products and services on special offer and there will be a few fun activities for players, plus a goody bag for everyone who comes. That side of things is entirely optional, you are more than welcome to come along for your free photo & interview, then head off.
Events are taking place with the following details:
Mon 22nd August - Scotstoun Stadium, Glasgow
Wed 24th August - Manhattan Works, Dundee
Mon 29th August - Aberdeen Sports Village
Thu 1st September - Oriam National Performance Centre, Edinburgh
It will take place from 6:30pm - 9:30pm and if you want to attend, you'll be given a half hour slot in which your activities will take place. (the rest of the time you are free to browse at your leisure or head off).

Eight reasons why you should read Grassroots Magazine Issue 3
1/ Andy Murray and his World Cup dream: What would have been if Andy Murray had followed football instead of tennis? Would he run the Scotland midfield alongside Scott Brown and Darren Fletcher? Could he have led us to a World Cup? It’s all fantasy, but even Andy admits, “I would love to know what it feels like to score in a World Cup final.” Read the full interview on pages 28 and 29.
2/ “There are some short-sighted clubs, that want to get more money from the SFA to pay their bills instead of funding Grassroots and Youth Development and Performance Programs”. That’s the words of former Scottish FA Performance Director, Mark Wotte. Read more on his thoughts about Scottish football on pages 42 and 43.
3/ When asked who his toughest opponent is, Andrew Henderson replied “Myself –I don’t find any of them a problem if I’m on my top form. That’s the honest truth.” To be fair, he’s the world’s greatest ever freestyler based on the fact he’s won the World Championship four times already. Find out more about the freestyle genius on page 36.
4/ Imagine having over half a million followers on YouTube. That’s the life of FIFA Youtube star, Jack54HD. The creator of famous series, 7 minute squads speaks about his own footballing career and how he carved his own path despite advice. His interview is on pages 38 and 39.
5/ Messi, Ronaldo, Bale, Neymar, Ibrahimovic, and Lewandowski. We’ve got them all. Find out a little bit more about the stars through their own phones in our Celebrity Instagram section on page 25.
6/ Who’s Scotland only pro-futsal player in the world right now? No guesses. Kyle Ballingall is the name and we spoke to the man himself to find out how he’s managed it. From Scotland, Croatia, Spain, and now in France. Find out more on page 15. 
7/ Your content! That’s right. For the first time, we’ve taken your content and created a doppelgänger section. Do you or one of your team mates feature? Find out now on pages 26 and 27.
8/ Regional content galore! We’ve got all the top stories from the six regions of Scottish Youth Football. The stories that feature are:
