The Muirhouse based club are giving every school pupil in North Edinburgh a FREE season ticket for their forthcoming Lowland League campaign. As well as kids getting free entry any adult that attends matches with them will receive half price (£3) entry to the game.

Commercial Manager, Ross Ballantine, said “At the Strollers we are looking at various ways to engage more with the local community. “Our club feel this new initiative will allow families to come and watch us play at our home games without costing a fortune. 

“Not every family in our area has disposable income and we are keen to ensure that local people can come to Christie Gillies Park and enjoy a family day out at the football and have fun.

”The club, who celebrated their 110th-anniversary last year, has recently been granted planning permission to install floodlights to ensure they continue to meet SFA membership criteria. As well as having a team in the Lowland League the Civil Service Strollers Youth setup also has over 130 kids taking part in football activities each week. The club pride itself on keeping costs for playing to a minimum. 

Ross added “The Strollers youth setup is going from strength to strength at the moment and more kids are joining each month. “Our youth coaches work tirelessly to ensure kids can learn to play football in a safe and fun environment. “To reflect the nature of our community we keep the cost to parents and families as low as we can and monthly prices start at just £10.00.”

Season tickets will be available to school kids before the 2019/20 campaign kicks off.
