St Peters to host EH17 charity event

Written by 
St Peter's FC 99s will take on a Paisley and Johnstone District YFL Select XI on Saturday, in  an event in aid of The Brightest Star, a charity which supports bereaved families.
The match will be played in memory of Eilish Herron, who was killed in a car accident at the age of 17. 
Her brother, Niall, captains St Peter's 99s, and Eilish was regularly seen at their matches. She eventually became good friends with the whole team.
The Herron family have been involved with St Peter's for the last 10 years, and the club wanted to do something special to remember Eilish. 
They got in touch with a number of players from across the PDJYFL who were delighted to be involved in Eilish's special day and provide the opposition for St Peter's. This includes a number of former St Peter's players.
St Peter's have created a festival atmosphere surrounding the match as well, with various age groups taking part in activities including Beat the Goalie, Crossbar Challenge and Skills Tests. 
Paisley Netball Team, who Eilish proudly played and coached for, will also be taking part in the event, with the St Peters mums providing stern opposition to them in a number of fun activities. 
Arthurlie Juniors have provided fantastic support for the event, giving free use of their pitch and social club at Dunterlie Park, Barrhead. They are also providing the Select XI with full Arthurlie kit.
A Just Giving page has been set up for any donations at www.justgiving.com/StPetersFC1999s and any donations are greatly appreciated.
