Scott Kinross, Active Stirling & Scottish FA Football Development Officer said "To have 2 winners locally this year is fantastic.  Riverside FC Powerchair Team have only been established for 1 year now and they now have 12 club members and 2 coaches who provide weekly coaching sessions and opportunities to participate in the MDUK league which takes place at the PEAK.
Gary Grahamslaw, Cambusbarron Rovers FC has been involved in the club for over 40 years now and has made a fantastic contribution to his club and amateur football throughout this time, and is a respected figure throughout the amateur game”.
